CJ checking out real planes. This didn't impress her as much as I thought it would.
After we got home and the girls took their nap, I started thinking of an art project to go along with our trip. Here is what I came up with:
- blue construction paper
- white paper airplane (I cut mine out using my Cricut Expressions but you can print out an outline of an airplane or draw one freehand)
- something to color with (I originally planned on using crayons but CJ decided that she wanted to use her Dot Markers instead)
- cotton balls
CJ wanted to fly the airplane around before coloring it. I used this opportunity to ask her where the various parts of the plane were (wings, tail, etc)
She loves mixing colors with the Dot Markers and seeing new colors she comes up with.
She hates when she accidentally makes a mess on the table so I let her clean up with a baby wipe.
Apply glue and cotton balls. I had to do most of the glue to keep it in a "cloud" shape.
Finally, we read Planes at the Airport to finish off our spontaneous Airplane Adventure!
