I have seen these cute airplanes work great for party favors, as well as, boy-themed baby showers. Why not just use it as a summer craft for your kiddos? After the glue and paint has dried, they will spend hours playing with a toy they just made! If it breaks, no biggie! These are so inexpensive to make, that you could get away with making extras in case they break them beyond repair. The list of supplies and instructions can be found at Create.Craft.Love.
