Build a Cardboard Airplane

A simple DIY cardboard airplane project to foster hours of pretend play.

Johnny's airplane, made from a cardboard box

It doesn’t take much to build a cardboard airplane! The sheets of paper here double as passenger seats, the wings are decorated, and there is a nice pilot dashboard! I’m sure my children’s designs will become more sophisticated as they grow older, but now this is a wonderful way to promote imaginative play.
