In case you haven’t guessed, my daughter dictates most of what we do for these projects and events that I post. Yes…when she was going to lock, we made this toilet paper roll and shoe box lock. We made these toilet paper roll and ribbon roll dolls when she asked for her friend’s doll. This time Mia told me she wanted to build a plane… what? ? How do I do this? so! I came up with this quick little airplane clothespin kids craft.

I’m guessing she asked for an airplane because her Grandparents just left in one after visiting us for the holidays.  Although she’s only four, my daughter has flown on almost a dozen planes (includes layovers if you’re wondering). Both my parents and my husband’s parents live so very far away. So I was so happy to make this little craft with her.

Materials:

  • Clothespins
  • Foam craft sticks
  • Glue
  • Scissors

I also had these clothes pins handy (I did go to the store to buy some that look like little dolls because we are just going to have to try and make clothespin dolls very soon!).

Mia got these foam craft sticks for her birthday one year and they are so fun to play with.

They are also extremely easy to cut! So, I cut one for the wings in the front and pictured here are the wings for the back.

I wanted Mia to be able to make these, so we used good old white glue to glue on the wings, but I used hot glue to glue on the fin on the back.

That’s it! I thought they turned out pretty cute for a little quick kid’s craft!
