Clothespin Airplane




We made airplanes with clothespins and popsicle sticks. Our sticks were colored sticks, but you could use plain ones and then paint them, or put stickers on them, or color them with markers......endless possibilities.

Just glue the sticks to the clothespins, allow them to dry, then play!

We were going to just make them with 2 wings on top and bottom, but we just read a book called "The Airplane Alphabet Book," that showed a tri-plane that had 3 wings! So, we simply placed a 3rd wing inside the clothespin.



Do you like this idea?

Okay...I just read your entry on your Easter FHE plans and I'm even more excited because I am LDS as well and I also LOVE teaching my kids about the gospel also.

Okay....no more comments.
