A kids how too make airplane ornament

This is easy, even for tiny kids; no gluing or anything like that.Supplies
  • 2 rolls of life savers ( one for body and one you open for wheels)
  • 1 stick of gum with wrapper still on it
  • 1 rubber band
  • 1 ornament hanger or paper clip bent open ( not pictured)
How to make:
  1. pull rubber band through both wheels and over one wing.
  2. place closed roll of life savers over wheels and under wing
  3. Pull other end of rubber band over other wing and adjust wheels. ( this step is not shown) . The finished plane is easy enough to understand from finished item picture and description.
  4. Attach hook on both rubber bands above wings and hang on tree. ( not pictured)
Also cute as a party favor to entertain kids while gathering.

My MIL taught me how to make these a few years after I married her son.

Update for an older kid also get
  • another rubber band
  • a tootsie roll
  • a smarties
  • small crochet hook to fit through center of roll
make hole in each end of life saver roll. Push hook through it grab one end of new rubber band. Place a tootsie roll inside of band and pull tight to life savers place smarties at other end this makes tail and prop. Also if You want a stronger set of wings use a 5 pack of gum and don't unwrap.

If you don't want to use tootsie roll you can use a match with the head cut off and put a piece of craft paper on it for tail too.

Just get creative.


  1. That's a great idea! I passed it along to some teachers I know. =)

  2. This one looks like fun! I'm definitely keeping it in mind for William's next birthday party - thanks, Sunshine!

    XOXO, Libbie
