clothespin airplanes

Our friend Amanda at Crafts by Amanda is constantly coming up with amazing, low-cost craft ideas for kids.  She recently shared these absolutely adorable biplanes, made out of clothespins and popsicle sticks.  These are painted up as military planes, but the possibilities for a paint job are endless – check out her blog to see another pair she made that are painted up as Snoopy and the Red Baron!  Make some up for the kids to play with, or attach a magnet to the bottom to make a fridge clip for your favorite airplane enthusiast.  [how to make clothespin biplanes]
