Paper Towel Roll Airplanes

Another rainy Saturday, so we made airplanes out of paper towel roll. The pictures did not turn out that great, they look better in person.
The kids enjoyed making them, and playing with them afterwards.
We used: paper towel rolls (you could also use toilet paper rolls for smaller planes), scissors, glue, construction paper, markers, foam sheets ( I used them for the wings, so when the kids throw them they would bend, but you could also use construction paper or card stock. I got the foam sheets at the Dollar Tree), aluminum foil (for windows), and reinforcement labels(for decorations)

Cover the roll with construction paper.
Add wings and tail. And decorate.
This one is Colton's.

These are the girl's plane before finishing their decorating.

Here is Cody's.
