Make these awesome jet packs for each guest at the party:
1. 2 two-liter soda bottles filled with “styrophome peanuts”
2. Attached bottles together with several different colors of tape
3. Straps are made with duct tape.
4. Cut an X at the bottom of each red pastic cup (need 2 per pack)and attach to the spout of the bottle upside down. (I used hot glue.)
5. Tape red and orange tissue paper (inside the cup) and cut ends to look like flames.
