If you don’t have access to an air compressor or air tank with a spray-nozzle, you can either make your own rocket launcher (watch second video below), or make the blow-gun rockets. Either way, you’re going to be launching sky-high in no time!


  • Two straws each in two different sizes
  • two sheets
  • index cards
  • scissors
  • tape
  • hot glue gun
  • air compressor or air tank with spray-nozzle
  • metal tubing that fits just inside the larger straws

  2. I got mine from the hardware store like Home Depot, but craft stores might also have them (JoAnn’s, Beverly’s, or Micheal’s).

    Where can we get the metal tubing?

  4. Oops – another uploader error.. Ok, I just transferred the file and tried it myself – works all the way til the end. Let me know if you still have trouble.

    Hi Aurora.
    I got to the bit where you were just showing me the air compressor nozzle.
    Also now it’s saying video not found or access denied!?!?!?

  6. The video length is 7:27, and it should play all the way through for you – where are you finding the error occurs? The last part of the video says “go have fun…” did you get that far?

    Hi Aurora.
    I was watching this video and noticed that there is 2 minutes of it missing off the end.
    Could you work it out.
