How about a rousing rocket launch?Dan brought his homemade rocket launcher and we had a rocket making/launching contest.
Soda bottles, heavy foam, glue guns and a bunch of odds and ends were used to create the perfect rocket.
Dave is showing the lovely "left-over hotdog" rocket made by Jake. The two pencils protruding from the nose shows style and weaponry.
This is the Cherry-7-up rocket made by Dave. Inside the nose of the rocket are hot dog buns. He thought this rocket would feed the seagulls...as if they need any more to eat! They better watch out though, the plastic fork dart could prove to be dangerous!
This Sprite/water bottle rocket was created by Dan. The celery in the top turned in to a relish after a few launches. It could double as a food processor.
Here's Dan and Andy getting the "food processor" ready to launch. I think it would be a great infomercial!
The following videos are a sampling of how it's done. The camera person (me) couldn't track it very well. They shot so high and fast that it was next to impossible to keep up.
(That's my story and I'm sticking with it)
This video shows Jason launching his confetti rocket. It's hard to see but the confetti floated down beautifully after the launch.
This video shows Jake's hotdog rocket. We found the hotdogs but the rocket, with the #2 pencils, appropriately landed on the school.
We had a lot of fun! Since we didn't break any windows and no one reported us to the police, we may just do it again!
