Materials



Fridge magnets

Clothes peg (clothes pin) - one for each plane

Paint and small brushes
Craft glue suitable for wood
Small magnets or magnetic tape

Method
Cut one popsicle stick shorter for the tail of the plane. I cut a bit off each end so that both ends were squared.
Disassemble the peg.
Paint both parts of the peg and all the popsicle sticks.



Fridge magnets
Painting the disassembled peg.

Once the paint is completely dry, reassemble the peg.
Glue on the airplane wings, a popsicle stick on top and bottom of the peg. Glue on the tail piece.
