Sunday Snapshot – Imagination Takes Flight

This weekend we used our Makedo kits to build planes from empty diaper boxes!

The girls had great fun as flying aces! Oh, the excitement!! The adventure!!!

They soared so high! It was death-defying!!

Check out the look on Clara’s face after coming out of a loop!!

Have fun!!

Congratulations to Martha (comment #348, chosen by as the winner of the Makedo Giveaway!! A big thank you to everyone who entered!

Coming up….. another FUN giveaway starts soon, money-saving tips for the classroom (we HEART teachers), plus more frugal crafty goodness!!


  1. So cute! I love it! 🙂

  2. Dear Valerie,

    That plane hardly looks aerodynamic at all!

    In fact, I’d say that it looks like a box with wings. 🙂


  3. Those photos are so cute … I love that the scarves are flying behind and I love the big smiles!

  4. Love the safety glasses!!!

  5. Love the pictures! What a cute idea to make airplanes for girls. They are so courageous 🙂

  6. Love the look on their faces. So what did you hook those scarves onto make them look like they were floating in the breeze?

    • Valerie says:

      These photos were taken in the wind tunnel that is in the room next to our anti-gravity chamber. 😉 Just kidding, Mark threw the scarves up, and jumped out of the shot in time for me to snap the photo… hee hee!

  7. Can the girls fly over to visit Grandma and Papock today?

  8. Love Mark’s comment =)

    Looks like the girls had a blast! I can’t get over how much alike they look!

    • Valerie says:

      It’s really crazy, isn’t it? Especially when I style their hair the same way.

  9. I didn’t win??? Boo hoo. Congrats to Martha! Guess I’ll have to try to win the next one!

  10. How very very fun. Now I’ve got the song “Up in the Air, Junior Birdman,” in my head.

  11. I think the girls had lots of fun and I love your airplane idea!!

  12. Love the expressions on their faces! How fun!

  13. I love the sky and cloud background you made and the safety goggles are a great addition as well!

  14. That’s adorable!
