Making crafts that fly is a way to get two activities for the price of one! These crafts are fun for the kids to create… and then a whole lot of fun to play with!
Many of these crafts are ones that have aspects that both my 2 year old and my 6 year old can do, and I love finding one activity that works well for both of my little guys! And that they are fun hands on ways to learn science!
