Do your kids love to watch airplanes take off and land? Do they think it's fun to try and read the messages of airplanes that travel with banners flapping behind them?
Then this airplane coloring page is for them!
Designed by children's book author and illustrator, Melanie Hope Greenberg, and based on one of her published greeting cards, this airplane coloring page will give kids the chance to write their own airplane banner messages.
Coloring pages are great on-the-spot boredom busters, as well as good table-top activities for parties and gatherings.
Greenberg's illustration feature a line of vehicles traveling across a bridge spanning a body of water. High over head flies an airplane with a trailing behind. With so much traffic to color, you'll definitely want to have this airplane scene coloring sheet on had for kids who love transportation.
But the most important question is, what will the banner say? You can see below, what I'd put on the banner!
