Electric tape airplane
A guide to making an airplane out of sticks and electric tape
This is a great activity to give small children a sense of creative satisfaction in producing a cool looking toy that they’ve made themselves.
Position three of the sticks on top of one of the others sticks about a third of the way down the plane’s body to form the wings and the body of the airplane. An adult will need to tape these securely into place – see picture.
It’s now time to set the child’s creative prowess free on decorating the airplane body. Get them started by winding the tape around. They might decide to stick to one colour all over with some go faster electric tape stripes on the side. Alternatively they may decide on their own personal and colourful interpretation.
Allow them to continue until they feel their work is done. It’s now over to them to enjoy playing with their creation.
