Let's fly high with today's craft. We are going to use a craft roll to make a play airplane. Here is what you need to make this craft:
Project Difficulty: Beginner/Intermediate
- Blue Construction Paper
- 1 Piece of Bright Pop Cardstock
- Erasable Colored Pencils
- Washable Liquid Glue
- Washable Glue Stick
- Glitter Glue
- Craft Roll (paper towel roll size)
- 2 Popsicle Sticks
- Cut the craft roll in half.
- Place the craft roll at the corner of the construction paper. Make a mark at the end and roll the craft roll making marks as you roll it until you rolled in around one complete circle. Draw a line across the end.
- Cut along the dashes and the lines.
- Rub glue stick all over the construction paper and glue around the craft roll.
- Pinch the end of the craft roll closed and staple at each end. You might need the help of an adult.
- Use the scissor to cut a slit in the center about 1/2" long.
- Cut two 1/2" (can estimate) slits on each side of the front opening. Cut two additional ones opposite of these slits.
- Fold the top in along the slits and glue.
- Take the extra piece of craft roll and cut along the side so you can lay the piece out flat.
- Draw a long oval, small oval piece and a tail piece and cut out.
- Trace the pieces two times from step 10 on the back of the Bright Pop page and cut out.
- Glue them to the each side of the craft roll pieces.
- Insert the tail piece into the slit you created on the stapled side of the craft roll.
- Cut a small slit at the end of the tail piece.
- Slide the small oval in this slit.
- Glue the large oval piece on the top of the craft roll, this is the plane wings.
- Glue the two popsicle sticks together in a cross shape.
- Apply glue to the back and glue to the front of the plane.
- Decorate the plane with glitter glue.
- Be sure to let the plane completely dry before playing with it!
Get ready to soar into a fun with this play plane!
