Hi guys! Halloween is just around the corner, so now it’s crunch time for making those costumes! If your child’s costume requires (or would be made better with) a plane or car or something, read on! I’ve got a tutorial just for you. It’s not hard, really! It just takes a bit of time. I was able to make these two “Why Flyers” from Super Why in a day. Granted, a day dedicated to making them, but if you split up the steps, you should have no problem getting them done by Halloween!

Materials Needed:

  • Thin plumbing tubes – I was able to get these at a local hardware store for about $1.50 each
  • Cardboard – I’d been saving boxes for a while, so hopefully you have some in your garage. You’ll need one to rest your vehicle on, and another for the wings/tail and other details
  • Duct tape
  • Scissors
  • Yarn or twine
  • Newspaper or brown craft paper
  • Flour
  • Water
  • Large mixing box
  • Wisk
  • Craft paint
  • Paint brushes
  • Hot glue
  • Ribbon
  • Packing tape
