Rocket ship play house

Hey Makers, remember when I built a cardboard rocket ship playhouse for the kids area:

I joked that since it was cardboard and masking tape it’d probably only last six months.

Well it’s been six months! The rocket ship is looking a little rough, we can keep taping it up, but I wanted to say this was a totally fun project and if someone else wants to build another kids area type thing in that corner, I will not be feelings hurt about it. I might even help out! Dream big, this was a totally fun thing.

I was going to recycle it but if the big parts are in reasonable shape I bet we can donate it. I just thought it’d be neat for that corner to be a rotating space for weirdo kids projects, forever.

Hey Kim. I’m curious. What did you use to model and create the parts for the rocket? I have been playing with Fusion 360 and it’s slicer plugin. Really cool.


Some people say I use Inkscape for too many things but I don’t need their negativity in my life.

If kids like it, would it be worth making it out of more durable materials? Coming up with new things to put in the kids area on a rotating basis sounds great, but it will eat up even more of our precious volunteer hours.

And we still have the two control panels with blinky lights and switches that are available for someone to hook an Arduino to for ambience.
