  2. Use a black pen to draw a small picture of you and your dad onto a sheet of white card, then cut it out in a small circle. This will be the window.
  3. Cut out a circle shape from a sheet of yellow foam, then cut out a circle from the inside of this to create a window outline.
  4. Stick the yellow window outline to the window, then stick it to the front of the rocket, just below the blue tip.
  5. Use the black pen to write “Dad I love you to the moon and back” underneath the window.
  6. Cut a strip off of the magnetic tape, then turn the rocket over and stick the magnet to the back.
