How cute is this Valentine craft idea? All you need is a stick of gum, 2 peppermint Lifesavers, a Smarties roll, and a rubberband. With a bag of each of these candies and a pack of gum, you could make a class set for your child.

There are a couple of options if you want to add a Valentine’s Day message. You could attach a banner to the tail end of the plane with string. If you visit Giver’s Log, you will find a printable template for the banner in the picture below.
If you want to add a message to the wings of the airplane, visit the website Gramma Lowe. You will find a template for the message shown in the picture below. For those of you with graphics editing software the size of the wrapper is 292 x 222. You can create a custom wrapper with the wording and pictures of your choice.
If you want to add more color you could use Gummy Savers in place of peppermint Lifesavers for the tires. For the body portion of the plane, you could use a large Tootsie Roll or maybe even a regular Lifesavers roll of candy.
