We painted empty juice boxes by mixing glue with some paint- otherwise, the paint will chip off. Then, we used the ends of spools of thread to stamp wheels onto circular papers.
We painted paper towel rolls. You can add mosaic squares for windows and alphabet stickers to create an airline. Next, slit through the center of the roll about 2 inches wide. Cut a piece of card stock to resemble the wings and slide through the slit. I stuffed the hole at the front of the plane with a giant pom pom, placing glue a log the perimeter of the tube to make it stick.
The kids colored one side of a sheet of paper with crayons, and used do-a-dot markers on the other side. Then, I folded a paper boat, and then unfolded it so that the creases would remain in the paper. One at a time, I worked with the kids to refold the boat!
The mobiles came out adorable! Here are a couple pictures, and I'll have to post more tomorrow when I bring my camera home (I forgot it today)
