Level of Difficulty: Easy

Here's how you make it...

1. First you'll need to cut out 8 hearts (an adult will have to do this for little ones). The secret is to make your hearts long and thin. You will need 1 big heart for the body of the plane; 1 small heart to attach your propeller to the plane; 2 small, thin hearts to make the propeller; 2 medium, thin hearts to make the front wings; and 2 small, thin hearts to make the back wings (see photo). You can easily make great looking hearts by folding the paper in half, cut half a heart, and unfold.

OR make it super easy by using our Printable Templates

2. Glue your hearts in place, as shown in the photo.

If you're giving this as a Valentine you could write: "Just flying by to wish you a Happy Valentine's Day"; or, you could use white chalk or crayon to write "Happy Valentine's Day" as smoke coming from the back of the airplane, be creative!
