With Apollo 11 being all the rage right now during their 50th anniversary celebration, my boys have been asking to make, color, and build rockets that look like Apollo 11. 

My 7-year-old actually came up with this straw rockets craft idea, and he was so happy that I said it would make a great blog post so that other kids could enjoy straw rockets, too! πŸ˜‰

We designed the free rocket template together, and after he advised me several times to make some changes (haha!), he finally approved our final rocket template. (Download is toward the end of our post.)

We’ve had so much fun launching our Apollo 11 straw rockets, and we hope you will, too!
