Description

Cut out a piece of stiff card in the shape of a rocket/plane/monkey/lizard and get the Beavers to decorate colour the card. On the reverse of the card tape two short pieces of straw. Thread a length of string through the straws to form a loop at the top and knot off the ends. Tape a coin or suitable weight to the bottow of the card to allow the card to drop when released. Now hook the loop of string over a door handle or coat hook and pull the strings apart, the card design will shoot up the strings and drop back down when the strings are loosed.
