For this project, the materials you need are as follows:
1. Old Magazines (Let's go green and recycle!)
2. Glue (Make sure it's non-toxic)
3. Scissors (Used under adult supervision.)
The steps are simple - cut the desired airplane parts (body, tail, engines, wings) and glue them togethers.
Pretty simple yet it provides a nice toy for your kid that he wouldn't trade for a Wii. Unless, of course, he sees the real Wii. But until then, you have created a simple art project for your kid.
