The Great Summer Rocket Race

On your marks, get set, spray!

Grab the kids – along with plenty of water – and head to a local park or your back garden for the most intergalactic (and super splashy) fun you can have without leaving the ground.


All you need is some string (the ‘track’), plastic cups (‘rockets’), and water-blasters (‘rocket fuel’). Simple spray bottles are great for little ones. Older kids might prefer something with a little more power! We chose red cups to match the rocket in our second book, but kids can customise theirs however they want.
