Summer is still here and Model Rockets make for a fun time!

Model rockets have been both entertaining and educating kids for decades, and that hasn’t changed even in a world addicted to apps like Angry Birds, Candy Crush and Tank Hero. Today an estimated 9.6 million model rockets are launched every year by 2 million enthusiasts of all ages – roughly one-third of them girls – often igniting a lifelong interest in everything from science, math, engineering and technology to space travel.


Now that warm weather has arrived, you can nurture that interest – not to mention keep kids productively occupied outdoors. From ready-to-fly models that come fully assembled to kits that can be put together in roughly an hour, model rockets come in all sizes, colors and altitude capabilities from 100 to several thousand feet. Prices start at under $10, and every rocket is reusable with a new engine, igniter and igniter plug.


Bonus 1: model rocketry is a great activity for kids 10 and up (adult supervision recommended under 12), an age where it begins getting harder to keep kids engaged without digital devices.


Bonus 2: it’s also a great party activity with a selection of party packs like the one at

We received samples and loved how much fun these model rockets are! My 12-year-old son had a blast and was amazed at how high up they went!
