I am always trying to come up with fun projects to do with my kids, and I decided to build a "Dizzy Plane!" I have no idea if that is what you actually call them, but I started building these by myself when I was pretty young. It is basically a small wooden plane with a heavy nose on a string. It has enough weight in the nose so it "flies" when you spin around with it. You can go to any craft store or click on the Amazon links below to order everything you need.
Use the sharpie and draw a wing and a fuselage. You will also need to cut a few "support" pieces to make the wing and tail easier to glue on.
Glue the wing in place
The finished plane, without the string or nose weight attached yet.
We sandwiched the string between a small piece of wood and the wing.
Here is the test flight after I gave him a brief lesson on how to fly the dizzy plane!
You can also just leave the string off and use it as a glider.. We actually built two and we had plenty of supplies left to build even more.
Dont forget to paint and decorate !
