Method
Keep the bottle upright. I preferred a plastic bottle. Also choose a tall, slender one so that it can look like a rocket.

Use colored paper to cover the bottle. Make thick strips out of paper and envelope the bottle.

Take a square colored paper, fold it twice to make a funnel and stick it on top to make the rocket's nose.

For the fins, cut 3 pieces of cardboard and cover with colored paper. Stick onto the rocket.

With the glitter paper or aluminium foil make a window.

Use a marker to engrave any symbol.

Your easy rocket is ready. Only thing left is, a signal to launch it!
