Plastic bottle airplane

By Julia Gorham

What a great recycling crafts project to do with your child and great fun too!


It’s amazing what can be created with a empty plastic bottle! You will need to assist your child to cut and place the wings on the plastic bottle.

You will need:

  1. Used pizza box or corrugated cardboard

  2. Stickers

  3. Paint and paintbrushes/pens

  4. Foil paper

  5. String or nylon

To do:

  1. Remove the label on the plastic bottle

  2. Draw wings and tail on the cardboard and cut out

  3. Using a sharp knife, cut out slits in the bottle to slide the airplanes wings and tail

  4. Let your child paint and decorate the bottle


You can place a small slit on the top of the bottle to tie nylon to make a beautiful airplane mobile.
