National Aviation Day Pretend Play Plane Crafts

child-play

Your creative kiddo loves to imagine their an aviator. Don’t worry about buying your child a pricey toy plane to pretend play on National Aviation Day. Instead, try one of these easy art ideas!

Cardboard Box Plane

Reuse an old cardboard box and turn it into a pretend play plane. Choose a large-sized box, such as a moving box or appliance box. Open the box’s top and fold down the flaps. These will become the plane’s wings. Fold one more flap down in the back to make the plane’s tail. Your child can decorate the interior of the box, drawing instruments and other airplane items onto the cardboard with markers.

Poster Board Costume

Create a costume using two large pieces of poster board. Draw a plane outline on one piece of the board. Cut the shape out and trace it onto another piece of paper. Cut the second plane out and have your child decorate both shapes with crayons or markers. Punch two holes at the tops of the planes in the same places. Thread yarn through the holes, attaching the two pieces together to complete the costume.

Mini Models

Make an entire airport-full of planes—using modeling clay. Your child can sculpt their fleet from soft clay and then create a hanger to put them in. Use a shoe box to make the hanger, decorating it with cut paper, glue, paint, marker or crayons.
