Make this aeroplane craft for preschoolers while reading these Fun Books:
Step 1: Download and Print the Free Airplane Craft Template
Download and print the Free Airplane Craft Template. In the next step, learn how to quickly cut out as many shapes as you need.
Step 2: Staple and Cut Out the Aeroplane Craft Shapes
Once you have the print outs, staple them to up to 10 sheets of copy paper, 5 sheets of cardstock or 6-10 sheets of construction paper.
So, did you know, you can staple together 10 pieces of copy paper and cut out 10 shapes at a time?! That’s my SECRET to fast & easy crafting. Stapling the paper is very important because it makes sure it doesn’t move as you cut. The more staples the better. Cardstock is the thickest so you may only be able to cut 5 sheets at a time.
Tip: While you’re cutting, if you’ve cut off all parts of the pages that have staples, make sure to re-staple the sheets that are left. Whenever you’re cutting multiple sheets at a time, make sure they are always stapled together!
Step 3: How to Assemble
The kids will just need to glue it all together and make it their own!
- Glue the back wing behind the body and the front wing on the front of the body
- Personalize the plane with windows and decorations
- Don’t forget to put your name on the back
Step 1: Glue the back wing behind the body at the top of the plane
Step 2: Glue the second wing onto the front of the plane, at the bottom of the plane body
Step 3: Draw windows and customize your plane with markers. Don’t forget to write your name on the back!
And you’re finished!
It took me less than 10 minutes to have the supplies for 20 kids. How amazing is that?! This airplane craft is perfect for a transportation lesson, preschool, Scouts or just a fun school party idea.
