We’ve taken the classic balloon rocket game and made it space party-ready by launching a space shuttle rocket right on top. It’s the perfect party game for those rocket enthusiasts and will keep the kids entertained time and time again!

  1. Assemble the space shuttle rocket gliders by taping the gliders to the top of the straws.
  2. String the straws onto a 6-foot piece of string.
  3. Then tie the string between to chairs.
  4. Have a guest inflate their balloon. Just pinch the end close; don’t tie it.
  5. While holding the end of the balloon closed, tape the balloon under the space shuttle and straw.
  6. Let go of the balloon and see how far your rocket will go!
