These are the best ideas we have for incorporating this helicopter craft template into their daily activities.

Keeping toddlers, preschoolers, or kindergarteners interested in an activity can be challenging.
These children have the shortest attention span; therefore, we must prepare exciting activities for them.
My kids were immediately interested in transportation and helicopters after I showed them the printable helicopter craft template.
I’m glad I was able to find some fun helicopter-related products in advance.
I used these items to plan more activities for them once they finished the helicopter craft.
We read a book and played with some fantastic helicopter toys as we continued to learn about helicopters.

2. Egg Carton Helicopter Craft
It’s not necessary to spend a lot of money or search far for materials while making arts and crafts, especially if children will be the ones to create them.
Our arts and crafts materials must be simple, easy to find, and, of course, easy to make!
With the help of this printable helicopter craft template idea, we’ll show kids how to reuse items they usually find around the house.
Let’s start making an egg carton helicopter craft.
Bring out your empty egg cartons, paint, paper, scissors, and hot glue.
To begin, cut two egg carton shells and one conical shape for the helicopter tail.
Using hot glue, attach the two carton shells and the cone shape.
You can use any color you have on hand or a bright color to paint it.
Keep in mind to leave a small area unpainted for the helicopter window.
You may sketch and cut out two strips for the helicopter blades from paper, then place them on top of the egg carton craft.
You may add more helicopter parts, like drawing the doors.
The kids will love this egg carton helicopter craft, so be sure to make lots of them!
They’ll have a great time doing this recycled egg carton craft with their buddies!
3. Helicopter Toilet Roll Craft
We always add new simple DIY crafts for kids, which is one of the best things about our printable helicopter craft template ideas.
So that kids may experience recycling different things, we make sure to include one or two homemade crafts in our list of ideas.
Recycling allows them to express their creativity by transforming an object into anything they want it to be.
Get to work and begin making a helicopter toilet roll craft by getting the following materials ready: a toilet paper roll, cardboard, paint, a paintbrush, popsicle stick, markers, scissors, and hot glue.
The body of the helicopter will be a toilet paper roll.
Other helicopter parts can be drawn and cut out on a piece of cardboard.
Create a rectangle for the tail by drawing it, cutting it out, and then trimming one inch off of one side.
To make the helicopter blades, cut the popsicle stick in half, or use a straw instead.
To cover the toilet paper roll spaces, cut two cardboard circles.
Once all the pieces are ready, attach everything together using hot glue.
Finish it off by painting it with whatever color you want.
4. Letter H for Helicopter
With the help of this printable helicopter craft template, introduce and learn an alphabet letter!
Children may believe that learning letters is tiresome, but when combined with an engaging activity, learning letters becomes fun.
Move on to an alphabet lesson about the letter H when they have finished creating their helicopter crafts.
Transportation and the alphabet are great topics for your lessons this week!
You could also make more visual aids to teach about the letter H.
Prepare foam letter, cutout letter, or letter flashcards for the letter H.
The letter H’s sound can be taught and introduced with the printable helicopter craft template.
Encourage children to repeat the word “helicopter” a few times while they are doing crafts by asking them what kind of vehicle they are making.
You can also say that H stands for helicopter or that Helicopter starts with H.
Repeating the word while emphasizing the first letter will familiarize them with its phonic sound.
Learning and creating vehicle arts and crafts will always be fun here with us!
We are happy that we were able to provide you with these ideas so that you can plan a fantastic week for your children.
They will certainly look forward to your lessons and activities built on these ideas.
Be sure to keep a look out for more vehicle crafts coming soon!
