Build your own model jumbo jet! Nearly everything you need is recycled. Where will you fly?
What parts do jumbo jets have---wings? Tails? Propellers? Windows? Engines? Here's one way to create your own jet with a recycled tissue box. You might have other ideas.
With Crayola® Scissors, trim the opening of the box so it is the same on both sides. This is the cockpit.
Ask an adult to help you cut the top off of a recycled 1/2-gallon plastic milk jug. Tape it to the front of your plane for a nosepiece. Hold in place with Crayola School Glue. Dry.
Cut recycled cardboard into airplane wings and a tail. Cover with aluminum foil. Glue on the foil.
Tape and glue the wings to either side of your jet. Cut small cardboard triangles to support the wings. Glue in place.
Decorate your jet with aluminum foil strips and Crayola Glitter Glue. Glue on recycled buttons as lights. Add details such as rudders and windows. Dry.
Where will your Jumbo Jet let your imagination fly?
