OK I couldn’t find a picture of a plane made of natural materials, so if your child makes one we would LOVE to see it

Child Development Notes- Points to Ponder

We would recommend, a little internet browsing will give you lots of ideas but let your child create something new if that is what they want to do.  If you show them a picture that they like, they are very likely going to try to copy it, which is OK whilst they are learning the skills, but encourage experimentation, exploring new materials that they find and know that there is no such thing as failure,  just very valuable learning and practice of fine motor skills.
