Baxter sits on my shoulders pretty often, and Connor really wants Baxter to do the same to him. Alas, Connor’s shoulders aren’t quite big enough for Baxter to get comfy, so it only happens with a lot of coaxing from Connor.
Connor constructed this rocket for Baxter during his day off from school. He borrowed my folding protractor-ruler to exactly measure the angles he needed for the nose cone/pyramid (so he must be internalizing some of that geometry he’s been learning).
Assembly of the rocket involved my (very cheap) hot glue gun, Elmer’s glue (when we ran out of glue sticks), and gaffer’s tape (when the Elmer’s was taking too long to dry).
I’m still not entirely convinced that Baxter enjoys being rocketed around the house in a box, but I could be wrong.
