What You Will Need
Paint (Poster Colour)
Ice Cream Sticks
Inspire the love for flight in your child and at the same time, teach him the different parts of an airplane!
Gather the materials.
Cut an ice cream stick in half. Cut a small piece off the end of one half.
Keep the full half for future use.
Paint the parts of the plane in any colour. Decorate them with patterns too!
Check that there are 1 wooden peg, 2 full sticks and 2 cut pieces of stick.
Glue the full ice cream sticks onto the peg to form the top and bottom wings.
Glue the cut pieces of stick onto the back of the peg to form the stabilisers.
