A brilliant way to get a view through an aeroplane window!
You will need:
|Start by cutting out two large, flat oval shapes from cardboard box card.|
|On one of the pieces of cardboard box card, draw an inner oval, about 4cm from the edge, like this...|
|...and on the other, draw an inner oval, about 1.5cm from the edge.|
|Cut the middle sections of both ovals out, and you should be left with two loops, like these.|
|Glue the thinner one on top of the other, like this...|
|...and there you have a frame for an aeroplane window!|
To create the shutter for the window, use the bigger of the two pieces of leftover cardboard box card.
Cut it down, and it should fit into the frame snugly.
|Add another piece of cardboard to make the shutter look more 3D...|
|...and why not make a handle, again by using cardboard box card.|
|Once you've stuck everything in place, paint the frame a creamy white colour, perhaps with a little grey shading.|
|To make the view, you'll need sticky back plastic and tissue paper in different shades of blue.|
|Cut a piece of sticky back plastic that's a bit bigger than the window frame.|
|Lie it down so that when you peel off the backing, it's sticky side up.|
|Next, cut out cloud shapes from tissue paper in different shades of blue.|
Place them onto the sticky back plastic.
Overlap them and position them evenly.
|Go over the whole sheet, making sure that put different shades next to each other.|
Carefully lay another sheet of sticky back plastic over the first one, trapping the clouds.
Press down on the plastic to remove any air bubbles or creases.
Place the frame on top of the sheet, and draw around it.
Cut it out slightly within the line, and it will fit neatly into the frame.
|Then just tape it into place!|
|Next, find a picture of an aeroplane and trace or copy it onto some black paper, like this...|
|...and stick it onto the back of the frame.|
You can also cut out a silhouette of a city skyline, to fit into the bottom of the frame.
Just glue it in place using stick glue.
|If you stand the frame on a window sill, or ask an adult to carefully sticky tack it onto a window, look what happens - the silhouette really stands out and the light shines through the clouds!|
This one's been made in the same way - but this one has a circular frame which looks like a submarine porthole!
Try it yourself!
