This is definitely one of my favorite crafts done by the boys in RP's den. We have our annual Blue and Gold Ceremony this coming weekend with a theme of "Flight." Each of the Dens are responsible for making a center piece under the theme, so my den made some clothes pin airplanes and a diorama to put them in. I found the planes online line here and then had the genius idea (with a little help figuring how to make this a requirement) of putting the planes in shoe boxes. Boom. Best craft ever. The boys really loved making the planes and their scenes too. Creative bunch I have here. I am impressed with each of their artistic abilities and how well they stayed on task during this meeting.
|Hard at work coloring the sky and gluing tissue paper as grass.|
|Not only did he color the back part, but the sides too!|
|This guy hung his planes so it was soaring in the sky!|
|Got artsy and took his pic upside down. Used all mediums from coloring to paper to tissue paper.|
|RP meticulously using torn up tissue paper as grass so there would be texture.|
|RP's finished product....not sure what he has against blue skies! I like the one taking off :)|
