Welcome to a new series about Transportation on Mustard Seed Family. From April-June I will be sharing a variety of activities for your toddler/preschooler. This series includes art projects, sensory play, outside activities, and field trips.
Today I’ll be sharing a free template for building airplanes.
Invitation To Build A Plane
- White Paint
- Blue construction paper
- Cotton balls
- Plane Template
- Propeller, Wings, Body, Tail (cut out from the template on different colored construction paper)
To begin, ask your child to make some clouds by dipping the cotton balls in the white paint and blotting them onto the blue paper. Once the paint has dried, they can begin building their planes. Have them glue on the body, tail, propeller, and wings.
This activity is great for a couple of reasons. First, it’s great fine motor practice. And it’s also a fantastic way to teach the parts of the plane.
If your child is younger, you could spread the glue on the paper and ask the child to place the items on top of the glue. For an older child, they can do the gluing themselves. An older child could also cut out the parts of the airplane from the template.
After the glue has dried, they can draw birds, or the sun, or windows on the planes.
Isn’t it darling?
Below is a Free Template!
