Make these easy helicopters out of egg cartons. These choppers definitely look super cute.
: 5-10's, Over 10's, Any Age
2 egg carton shells 1 conical portion that separates the shells (refer picture)
2 small strips of colored paper
Liquid glue/Hot glue
Scissors/ Paper cutter
Pieces cut from egg carton tray
Cut out the egg carton pieces as shown in the picture. An adult can help with the cutting part.
Stick the 2 shells together. Hold the two pieces firmly together till the glue dries and it stabilizes.
Mark a 'window' on the front and paint it white. Color the rest in bright color.
Paint the conical part in a contrasting bright color.
Now stick it on to the egg carton shell as the 'tail' of the helicopter. Again, hold firmly till dry and stable.
Draw windows on either side.
Cut out two strips of colored paper and paste on the top as the blades.
Your cool and simple chopper is ready. Use your imagination with colors to make an entire fleet. Or make a helipad.
