Cut your reflective wrapping paper a little bigger than the circumference of the bottle and as tall as the bottle. You're going to wrap each of them like a present. Apply glue around the body of each bottle, leaving the bottom curve and neck without glue. Roll the silver wrapping paper around the bottles.
For each bottle, cut 12 strips of tissues paper, 4 orange, 4, red, and 4 yellow. Cut to slightly different lengths. This is a great job to hand off to your children as long as they know how to use a scissors safely. These become flames for the Astronaut Rocket Pack. Cut a nice long strip of duck tape and attach the strips of tissue paper to ½ the width of the duck tape. Role the duck tape with tissue flames attached to the caps of the bottles. The astronaut rocket pack fuel tanks are done.
To attach the fuel tanks to each other, partially attach a strip of duct tape along the length of the bottle (see image). Attach the second bottle by pressing both bottles together.
Cut 2 equal lengths of the elastic to a strap size that will fit your little one. For my 6 year old, I cut them to 9 inches long. To complete your Astronaut Rocket Pack, attach the straps with duck tape at the top and bottom of each strap to the astronaut fuel tanks.
