It is half term here this week so here is something that will keep the little ones amused. The little one in our house, helped me make his new aeroplane and then his nanny and he played with it happily for over an hour.
The only things you’ll need are a pen, a pair of scissors,a piece of blutack or a paperclip and one of these polystyrene pizza bases:

Cut out the pattern and place it on the pizza base. Draw round it with a pen. You can make a mark for the wing slit by drawing over the line heavily.
Cut out the pieces and cut the slit for the wings. Push the wing through the slit. Add a piece of blutack or the paperclip to the nose to make a weight – a necessity according to those who know about these things.
The little one here decided that his needed a name and a face. I didn’t have a lot of time to think about how I was going to add these (as you can see) – he was so desperate to play with it!
