To Infinity: Take Flight With This DIY Gift Idea


Rocket Air Star

What It Is: This week’s eclipse has no doubt sparked the imaginations of at least a few future scientists and astronauts. If someone in your house is considering the cosmos more carefully, then you’ll want to check out today’s gift idea: The Estes Rocket Star Air Rocket Launch Set. Working together as a family, kids as young as 8 can help construct their very own rocket that can launch into the sky at heights of over 50 feet! With two air rockets included, this cool mini-DIY project requires no batteries and can be safely used outdoors. It’s a perfect way to gather the family for some unwired time.

Who It’s For: Your science-loving son or daughter. Your new neighbours. The cousins when they’re gathering at grandma and grandpa’s house.

What It Costs: Just $11.99 USD + about $24.99 shipping. Normally I wouldn’t highlight an item with steeper shipping costs like this, but the overall price is still really affordable for what you get – plus you can potentially add more items (shipping creeps up a bit with heavier parcels) to make it extra worthwhile.

Where It’s At: Shop the Estes Rocket at Tower Hobbies online. Once you get into rockets, you’ll be pleased to know there is a Canadian site that sells all types, including others by Estes.
