Last week we read the book “The Noisy Airplane Ride” by Mike Downs. This book explores all the sounds and things you may experience on an airplane ride. This book would be great to read with your child right before their first airplane ride to prepare them for what to expect. We enjoyed talking about where Will may want to go on an airplane. We had to discuss that you typically take an airplane to a far away place. We settled on Disneyland as a place we’d love to take an airplane to.
Our project was to make a clothes pin airplane. This idea came from Parents Magazine. It was pretty easy.
Craft Sticks (2 regular size and 1 small size)
Red Craft Foam
Red Craft Paint
Blue Craft Paint
Hot Glue Gun
First, I had Will paint all the wooden pieces and left them to dry. We did not have any small craft sticks on hand, so my husband just cut a regular-sized craft stick smaller.
All the pieces.
Glue the pieces together as shown above using hot glue.
Here is the finished airplane with its pilot! He looks so happy to have his picture taken, huh?
