Make A Candy Airplane in Honor of Civil Aviation Day

Each year on December 7th in the United States International Civil Aviation Day is observed. The Organization of Civil Aviation was established in 1944 by the U.N. General Assembly. The goal was to manage the administration and governance of the Convention of International Civil Aviation. During this one day celebration the importance of international civil aviation and how it impacts the social and economic development of the country is discussed.

Smarties candy
1 Red stick chewing gum (Big Red)
2 Peppermint Lifesavers (individually wrapped kind)
Rubberband (medium to small sized and thin)
Small heart stickers

Open up your Lifesavers from their wrappers and insert the rubber band through them.  Position the Smarties candy between the Lifesavers over top of the rubber band.  Place the stick of gum across the top and loop the ends of the rubber band over the gum to hold it all in place.  Add small heart stickers to the top of the gum to make it more festive!
