Thank you so much for sharing this! We had tons of fun yesterday with the rocket. After the first round, my husband suggested taping little lights to the bottom of the bottle and launching it after dark. It was magic! I find it hard to stop browsing your site, it is so full of awesome value! My kiddies are going to benefit big time.
