Trim the top of the bag about 15cm above the tie.

Ask an adult to help you cut the top of the bag into fringes, making sure you don't get too close to the tie.

Repeat steps 1-3 to make more rockets.

To make the moon target draw a circle on a large piece of paper.

Divide the circle into four parts as shown in the picture.

Then draw or write a different activity in each part of the moon.

How to play the game

1 Place the moon target on the ground a few metres away from you.

Each player should choose a different coloured rocket.

2 Players take it in turns to throw their rocket so that it lands in one of the four different parts of the moon.

They must then do the activity.

3 If the rocket lands outside the target the player loses their turn.

4 The game continues until one player has done all the activities.
