Since North Carolina had the first flight, we made a plane!

You need a clothes pin, 3 bigger craft sticks (1 is cut for the tail and fin), 1 popsicle stick, and a wine cork.  You don't need a wine cork, but make sure you put your propeller flat or it won't sit correctly.  We put ours on a cork so we could display it.

I used the glue gun and he applied the pieces.

Finished plane!!
