Rather than sit around and watch TV all day, we have fun making crafts and snacks while watching movies, like one of our favorites, Disney's Planes. Today I am going to share a craft we recently made while watching the movie as well as a Planes themed snack you can create with your kids. If your kids love Planes, not only can you share this snack and craft with them, you can also surprise them on Christmas Morning with Planes themed gifts, now on Rollback at Wal-Mart! We picked up this adorable diecast set on a recent visit to our Wal-Mart here in town:

Today I'm sharing these runway placemats we made with a plane shaped healthy movie snack for the kids to enjoy while playing with their new Planes toys and watching the movie. The kids will love this fun Planes themed snack you can feel super good about preparing this for them (and with them) because it consists of mostly fresh vegetables! Here's a recipe for making “Veggie Planes” to snack on during the movie:
- 4 "Baby" Carrots
- 4 Celery Sections, about 5" long
- 4 Olives
- 4 Cheddar Cheese Sticks
- 8 Tooth Picks
- 4 TBSP Peanut Butter or Almond Butter
- 16 Raisins
- 1. Fill each celery stick with 1 Tablespoon of peanut butter or almond butter.
- 2. Skewer the end of the celery stick with two toothpicks to form an "X" shape at one end, propping the celery stick up like a propeller. Place raisins on the sharp ends of the tooth picks. Press an olive into the peanut butter on the end of the propellor.
- 3. Lay the cheese across the center of the celery stick to form a "wing". Press into the peanut butter to hold it in place.
- 4. Lay the carrot stick across the back end of the "plane" to form the "tail". Press into the peanut butter to hold it in place.
- 5. Eat and enjoy!
- C Thru Ruler 8″ x 10″ Laminate Sheets x 2 sheets
- Green Moire Rowlux cut to 8″ x 10″ (you can use green construction paper if you don't have Rowlux)
- Yellow Cardstock
- Black Cardstock
- Paper Trimmer
- Tombow Mono Adhesive Tape Runner
You can make one of these for each kid to have their own runway or you can create a bunch for a party. Consider making each one a little different to mimic the runways in the race in the Planes movie! Here's how to create your own Runway Placemats:
Basic Assembly Instructions:
- Cut the Black Cardstock to 3″ x 8″.
- Cut the Yellow Cardstock into 1/4″ x 2″ strips. Adhere the strips to the center of the Black Cardstock like painted road lines with the Tombow Mono Adhesive Tape Runner
- Adhere the Black Cardstock strip to the Rowlux with the Tombow Mono Adhesive Tape Runner
- Peel the backing from the Laminate Sheet and apply to the front of the Rowlux. If using cardstock or construction paper for the “green”, apply a Laminate Sheet to the back of the placemat as well. Trim any excess.
