This plane isn't a sappy valentine, so it is a good choice for boys or girls who love candy but not mush. These are also fun for kids to assemble themselves. You can substitute a large Tootsie Roll for the smarties.
You will need:
4. Rubber bands
5. Colored paper
6. Scissors and tape
7. Heart stickers
Step 1. Make the wings.
Wrap a stick of gum in colored paper. This will form the wings on the airplane. Decorate the wings with heart stickers.
Step 2. Get the wheels ready.
Slide a rubber band through two Lifesaver candies.
Step 3. Assemble the plane.
Put one Lifesaver on either side of a Smartie. Wrap the rubber band around the Smartie and over the ends of the gum.
Step 4. Add a card.
If desired, make a card to go with the plane.
