What You'll Need:

  • Red, white, and blue duct tape
  • 6, 15-ounce metal cans
  • 3 small socks
  • Rice
  • Rubber band
  • Funnel
  • Ribbon

Make It: Adhere strips of red, white, and blue duct tape to six clean, empty 15-ounce metal cans. Be sure to cover any sharp edges. For thinner lines, simply overlap the tape. To make the "rockets," use a funnel to fill three small socks with rice (about ½ cup in each) and tie them off with a hair tie or a rubber band. Thread a 3-foot length of sheer ribbon through each tie and knot it in the center to secure it. To play, set up the cans in a pyramid.
