Houston we have a go

I dramatically restrained the children whilst hubbie assembled the stomp rocket. Worried we would soon face a giant menacing rocket, I almost felt embarrassed when it was all set up and looked quite small and innocent, with a little foam rocket.

We activated our launch sequence and commenced the countdown, to our suprise the rocket reached a considerable height. The boys could even activate it themselves, jumping on with both feet to launch.

All the vibrations brought out a small army of worms, which entertained the boys even more.

If your feeling particularly ambitious the box says you can download lesson plans from their website and teach your children about force and motion. This present off Santa was definitely a hit and also a bargain for the £6.98 he paid when it was on offer!
