All opinions are mine alone. #PlanesToTheRescue #CollectiveBias The holiday break is here and if you are looking for something fun to do with your kids, the Planes movie and toys are here, to the rescue!  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:

Hydrangea Hippo by Jennifer Priest
While watching the movie the kids can play with their edible planes on these easy to make “Runway Placemats”:

2014-12 Planes Snacks by Jennifer Priest of hydrangeahippo 5

Craft Supplies:

  • 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
  • Scissors
  • 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:

  1. Cut the Black Cardstock to 3″ x 8″.
  2. 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
  3. Adhere the Black Cardstock strip to the Rowlux with the Tombow Mono Adhesive Tape Runner
  4. 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.
