How to Make a Clothespin Airplane Toy

| More

Oh boy….. do I have a fun craft for you today.  I’m going to show you how to make a Clothespin Airplane Toy.  This airplane toy actually works.  After the craft is done the child will simply hold on to the airplane’s string and start running…. the airplane should start flying.  Doesn’t that sound like fun?  Almost as much fun as it will be putting the craft together.  So, let’s get started.
