Watch the film

My Mother is an Airplane, Yulia Aranova, No dialogue, Rusia, 2012, original titel: ЖИЛ БЫЛ ДОМ

Let’s do this!

This is what you’ll need:

Paper, drawing supplies, envelope, stamp, address of a loved one and a stamp

What does your mom do for work? Make a nice drawing of your mom or dad at work. From this drawing you fold an airplane to send by airmail. Put the plane in the envelope, put a stamp on it and send it to someone you love. Don’t have a stamp? No problem. Let him fly through the letterbox of a sweet neighbor with a nice bow!

Step 1

Make a nice drawing of your mom or dad at work.

Step 2

Fold an airplane using the pictures below.

Step 3

Let the aircraft make a test flight in the room or in the garden. Does it fly well? Then it’s ready to fly away in an envelope with a stamp on it. Or through the air to someone close by. Maybe to one of your parents?

Share the result!
