Estes Model Rocket Launches in GIFs

No matter who you are or where you're from, there's one thing we can all agree on: rockets are cool. Most of us don't have the brain capacity to become rocket scientists, but the next best thing is available to everyone: model rockets (or awesome paper airplanes). At the top of the model rocket hierarchy is Estes, a globally known company with the best model rockets around. While building model rockets is fun, the best bit is launching them into the sky and seeing them reach the heavens. We captured ten of the best Estes model rocket launches in GIFs, so you can experience the awesomeness of a rocket launch minus the effort of making a model rocket yourself. You are welcome. 

If you want to see a real rocket being launched, check out SpaceX's Starship rocket's test flight.

Regardless, enjoy even more satisfying perfection with these gifs that will put your soul at ease when you see them.

DIY No-Sewing Face Mask From T-Shirt: Style One (Step by Step GIFS)

There are many reasons why reusable face masks are better than disposable face masks, and they're something that can be made at home.

If you prefer a different style of no-sew face mask, check out our other tutorial (style two)

DIY Face Mask At Home: Four Styles (Sewing and No-Sew)

Face masks are a part of our lives right now, whether we like them or not. While we don't really have a choice to wear them or not, we do have a choice to wear environmentally friendly, reusable, cute face masks! We made step by step GIF tutorials for four different kinds of face masks, including two styles for those who have sewing machines and fabric, pins, etc. (see here for sewing style one and style two) and two styles for those who don't know how to sew and don't have anything around except an old t-shirt (see no-sew style one or style two). So whether you're a master sewer or have no clue how to sew, you can make your very own reusable face mask at home. Clear an afternoon in your busy schedule (lol) and get making!
