Soda Bottle Jet Pack

I have to be careful not to leave my Pinterest page open, or my boys will start scrolling through and demanding we do every single craft they find on it…soda bottle jet packs were one of those demands. Soda bottle jet pack
We don’t drink a lot of soda, so my 6 year old went nearly crazy waiting for two 2-liter soda bottles to be consumed, washed and dried. But when they were, this is how we made the jet pack with things we already had on hand:

  1. Using a hot glue gun, glue two lengths of ribbon all the way across the front of the bottles like so:Soda bottle jet pack
  2. Take some red and yellow fabric, cut into flame shapes and pinch together with some dabs of glue…Soda bottle jet pack, flames
  3. Insert into the mouths of the soda bottles and put glue around the edge to hold the flames in place.Soda bottle jet pack, flames
  4. Cut straps out of felt or other fabric and glue in a loop on the “back” of the soda bottles.
  5. Wrap the ribbons all the way around and glue in place over the straps (this helps hold the straps on more securely).Soda bottle jet pack
  6. Draw, or glue “buttons” made of cardboard or other desired material
  7. Strap your explorer in and send them off for adventure!Soda bottle jet pack
Thank you Doodlecraft for the fabulous idea!

  1. This is so cute! I tried doing this with a cereal box and paper towel tubes and it failed. Too much cutting and tape. This looks 100% possible. :)
