Sky Month: Clothespin Airplanes

(For a complete list of our theme month projects, click here!)


Our sky theme month is trucking along. Isaiah loves airplanes, so I thought this would be the perfect morning activity, not to mention simple. We spent about five minutes making this clothespin airplane. He spent the rest of the morning playing with it.

It’s the little things.


We used one regular sized clothespin, then glued on two Popsicle sticks and two mini clothespins for the tail. Super easy. Super cheap. Super fun. In short, our kinda project. :)

    Have you guys visited Founders Plaza at DFW yet? We’ve taken a couple of picnic dinners there, and the kids love it! It’s a little observation area just outside of the airport where they broadcast the control towers’ conversations and where you can watch the planes take off. It’s perfect for little airplane lovers!
