Build your own Jetpack

Explore the world with your very own jetpack made by the power of your imagination!

You will need:

  • 2x 2 litre plastic bottles
  • Thick ribbon
  • PVA glue
  • Sticky tape
  • Tin foil
  • Red, yellow and orange paper

 Step 1: Cover both of the bottles in PVA glue, then stick the tin foil all around the bottles until it is completely covered.

 Step 2: For the flames, take your three pieces of paper and place them on top of each other. Cut strips into the paper vertically, ensure the cuts do not go right to the top of the paper.

 Step 3: Split these into 2 piles. With one pile, bunch them together at the top and tape them. Secure this to the neck of the bottle with tape. Repeat this with the second pile.

 Step 4: Cut a length of ribbon that is long enough to tie around the middle of both bottles and secure this with tape.

 Step 5:To make straps, cut two lengths of ribbon which are long enough to be worn over the shoulder.

 Step 6: Attach the straps to the bottles with tape. Finally, you could decorate your jetpack further.
