Christmas is behind us and only remnants of the holiday remain. Empty boxes pile up in the garage and we impatiently await the return of recycling. However, with a little imagination, they could turn into an airplane.
Ideally, you should choose a big box, so that your foam can sit in his new device. That said, if you only have small or medium boxes on hand, nothing prevents you from building an airplane for his Lego or his favorite plush.
You'll see, this DIY is super easy to make. In two steps, three movements, your child will have an airplane worthy of the Little Prince and will be able to fly off to the imaginary country of his choice.
The way forward
Close the box and leave only one panel folded down. Secure it tightly with high quality tape. This part will serve as the cockpit.
Take the flap you just cut out and draw a line down the center. Use each side to cut out the plane's propellers.
In another piece of cardboard, draw two circles: onebig and a smaller one. Cut out and assemble them with the propellers. Place the piece, using hot glue, on the front of the box that will serve as the cockpit.
Cut out two wings and attach them to the device.
Here! All you have to do is decorate the plane as you wish.
Psst! On various sites and blogs, we found other aircraft models, all just as easy to manufacture. Be inspired by our discoveries!
