Plastic bottle airplane

By Julia Gorham

What a great recycling crafts project to do with your child and great fun too!

It’s amazing what can be created with a empty plastic bottle! You will need to assist your child to cut and place the wings on the plastic bottle.


You will need:

  • An empty plastic bottle
  • Used pizza box or corrugated cardboard
  • Stickers
  • Paint and paintbrushes/pens
  • Foil paper
  • String or nylon


To do:


  • Remove the label on the plastic bottle
  • Draw wings and tail on the cardboard and cut out
  • Using a sharp knife, cut out slits in the bottle to slide the airplanes wings and tail
  • Let your child paint and decorate the bottle


You can place a small slit on the top of the bottle to tie nylon to make a beautiful  airplane mobile.
