To make your straw rockets, cut 2″ pieces from both of your large straws, so you have two 2″ pieces.

Then, block one end of the 2″ pieces by covering the opening with a piece of tape. Do this on both straw pieces.

Stick your planet cutouts, the balloon and star to a wall. See if your Captain Monsterica and Purple Protector can fly to each of the planets looking for the red balloon. 

To practice planet name recognition, call out a planet’s name, then have your little one fly their super hero to the correct planet. If you are playing with two people, see who can get to the correct planet first – Captain Monsterica, or The Purple Protector!
