EFL - Making Airplanes!

Our boy loves crafts. He loves them in the morning, he loves them in the afternoon... He loves them in the evening, and underneath the moon!

He. Loves. Crafts.

Luckily, so does his mother! :) ...And his father has been known to get right in there as well (see "Making Robots" for further proof)

Today's adventure in Extremely Frugal Living was making airplanes. Material list?
- Toilet paper rolls
- Scrapbooking paper
- self-adhesive foam letters and shapes (thanks grandma!)
- glue

Hunter picked out the colours he wanted for his airplane -We were all rather stereotypical in our colour choices. Hunter and daddy did blue planes, mommy did a pink plane with white hearts.

After all was said and done with the airplanes (they were built, they were flown, and they were crashed multiple times!), Hunter wanted to continue playing with the foam letters/numbers and shapes.

We traced them out on to construction paper, removed the backing and let him stick them in the lines as he counted the numbers. He did an incredible job!

Until next time :)
