We love paper crafts and paper loop crafts have become some of our favorites recently, as well. This craft is not only great for imagination, as you’re creating something you can then play with that comes together with so few supplies. But it’s great scissor practice, too, as there are some pieces that need cutting out.

Supplies needed:

Begin by cutting out the pieces of the template. Make sure to also cut the line across the bottom of the template. Trace the main section and tail on one color of cardstock. The wings and propeller strip are another color.

Then glue onto the very front of the plane.

Finally, make a slit in the center of the back of the plane. It needs to be about an inch or so long.

Fold just the very bottom of the tail and apply glue along the fold.
