This free printable build an airplane craft is a great creative activity to keep your kids entertained at home or during a playdate. It would also be fun to work on in the classroom as well.
With minimal supplies, your kids can create a finished work of art they can be proud of!
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 to complete the build an airplane craft:
- 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
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.
