One thing I love about these type of “build your own” crafts is that it is great for a wide variety of ages. My kids are three years apart and are at very different skill levels at the moment. However, both of them can easily color in the train pieces on their own. After a bit of help cutting the parts of the train out, they can both use glue sticks to piece together the train.

My youngest son’s train may not look quite like a train when he’s done, but he most definitely has a great time putting it all together.

Materials needed:

  • White printer paper or cardstock.
  • Free printable pdf coloring page (the download link is located at the bottom of this post)
  • Crayons, markers or colored pencils
  • Colored construction paper
  • Scissors
  • Glue

The first thing you will want to do is printout the airplane coloring page that is located at the bottom of this post. Using crayons, markers or colored pencils, color in all of the parts of the airplane.

If your child is old enough to use scissors, they can now cut out all of the airplane pieces. If they are on the younger side, you may need to help them with the cutting out step.

Once all of the pieces are cut out, your child can now begin to glue them together to form the train. They can glue everything to a colored piece of construction paper to add a fun background.

Favorite Printable Supplies:

These are a few of my favorite supplies that I use for printable games and activities:

  • White Cardstock: For most projects, I recommend printing onto cardstock. It is much more durable than standard printer paper and often produces a higher quality print.
  • Crayons: A staple in any crafting household. Crayola is always the top notch choice!
  • Kid Friendly Safety Scissors: These are perfect for little kids learning how to use scissors. They cut paper but not fingers or hair!
  • Glue Sticks: These disappearing purple glue sticks are by far my favorite! I love buying them in bulk since we use them so often!
  • Lamination Machine: Laminating printables are a great way to make them last longer. If you are planning on laminating to make games reusable, be sure to get a bunch of dry erase markers as well.
  • Dry Erase Pockets: Dry erase pockets are a great alternative to using a lamination machine when wanting to make printable games and activities reusable.
  • Printer: A high quality printer is always recommended for the best results. If you are in need of a printer this Brother Wireless Printer is a great choice.
