To infinity and beyond. Self-described tinkerer, Steve Lodefink, knows how to throw a party. For 5-year olds at least. He fashioned rockets out of simple materials (soda bottles, cardboard, tape and paint) and then let the kids decorate them. That right there sounds like a good party. But Steve took it one step further and actually launched those puppies.
Read all about constructing the rockets on his blog. If you're up for it, also find out how he made a launcher. Kudos, Steve!
