This simple and fun airplane craft is easy enough for preschool and kindergarten children to make. And, it ties in just perfectly with a Transportation theme unit -- at home or in the classroom.

Amazing Airplanes (Amazing Machines) Written by Tony Mitton, is a lovely picture book to read to children about transportation and the world around them.

And, there are so many great activities to go along with the book, like this craft stick airplane transportation craft and Traveling Song for kids!

The Traveling Song for kids is a nice complement to this super fun kids transportation craft activity.

So, what are you waiting for? Let's craft straight into the sky!

Craft supplies you will need:

  • Craft sticks
  • Grey paint
  • Paint brush
  • Black and blue markers
  • Cotton balls
  • Blue construction paper
  • Glue

Craft instructions:

Have the children paint 2 craft sticks grey.

Let dry.

When dry, have the children glue the 2 crafts sticks in an airplane shape on blue construction paper.

Next, using a black marker, have the children draw a front window, engines and passenger windows on the airplane.

Then, using a blue marker, have the children draw clouds on the blue construction paper.

After that, have the children tear off pieces from cotton balls. These cotton pieces will be used to make clouds and the jet's exhaust stream.

Using glue, have the children paste the cotton ball pieces to the clouds and in back of the airplane.

And, voila! The children have now made an airplane transportation craft!

This simple craft, for preschool and kindergarten children, is the perfect supplement to any transportation lesson plan.

Now, let's fly!
