Just Plane Fun!

Oops, not oops. I love me some cardboard box programming. It started off with a simple drive-in car program. Babies, sitting in cardboard cars, watching a short movie. What.could.be.better? I ask you. So then we did trains, pirate ships and now…we took to the skies in prop planes! It couldn’t have been cuter. Feast your eyes on these adorable photos. First we are in the hangar constructing planes, then we are on the runway, ready for takeoff! (click for larger images)

Book – Planes Fly! by George Ella Lyon

Rhyme: The Airplane
The airplane has great big wings,
Its propeller spins around and sings, “vvvvvv“
The airplane goes up,
The airplane goes down,
The airplane flies high all over town!

Song: I’m an airplane! (Tune: Clementine)
I’m an airplane, I’m an airplane
Flying up in the sky.
Flying higher, Flying higher
As I watch the clouds go by.
I’m an airplane, I’m an airplane
See me flying all around.
Flying lower, flying lower,
Till I land down on the ground.

Song: We are flying! (Tune: Frere Jacques)
We are flying, we are flying
Up so high, up so high.
See the fluffy white clouds,
See the sparkly sunshine
In the sky, in the sky.

We are flying, we are flying
Round and round, round and round.
See the tiny houses,
See the tiny people
On the ground, on the ground.

HOW TO make your own plane:
I made a TON of modifications to this bloggers already very nice design. I wanted the prop to spin. So I used the long cut-aways from the box as the wings and the short cut-aways as the propeller.  I punched a hole in the center of the cutaway and stuck an extra long brad in the middle!
