Materials:

  1. Wooden Clothespins
  2. Mini popsicle sticks  for the tail wing and rudder (you will cut both ends off some of your mini popsicle sticks, for a tail rudder for each plane)
  3. Medium/small ice cream sticks or medium sized popsicle sticks (I used the ice cream sticks) for the wings
  4. Hot glue gun and glue sticks
  5. Magnets
  6. Spray paint and/or craft paint

5.  Cut the ends of some of the mini popsicle sticks for tail rudders. Steve cut these for me with a hacksaw.  He put 5 together at a time, and put them in a vice and sawed them off (another alternative: use pliers to hold them and then saw them one at a time).

but I will say that, these are so cute even without the paint, that you could leave them natural, and they would be awesome.
