Fun Airplane Activities for Kids

My kids get so excited when they see an airplane in the sky. I think all parents can remember when there little one started to say the word airplane and point to the sky with their tiny fingers.

We have put together a list of some fun airplane activities for kids as apart of a Summer learning series topic. If you are new to that term summer learning series, let me explain what that means. I have a background in education and I’ve created a group of posts with topics that are meant to encourage learning while having fun and playing to get you through the summer.

Remember these airplane activities for kids are just suggestions and we never intend for you to everything in the summer learning series posts. Just pick something that looks fun to you or use this as inspiration to choose your very own activity.

This theme of airplanes is an easy one because you could simply have a picnic at the park and watch for airplanes to fly over. You could even make a chart to count how many you see.
