Upcycled Wheelbarrow Aeroplane

My husband (Andrew) and I just had a lovely 3 day weekend with the boys, hanging out at home and enjoying the sunshine. Andrew is an “active relaxer” so diy projects are usually on the cards for him if we are at home on the weekends. The boys were with him for a good few hours outside, so I went to investigate. I found them making the coolest upcycled wheelbarrow aeroplane. We had some unused plywood leftover from another project of his, an old camping chair, nuts, bolts, switches, plastic sheeting and a set of keys. And of course an old wheelbarrow base and tin bucket. Andrew can create just about anything with stuff lying around.       Lots of creativity andย imagination to be had by all the family with this one. And half the fun is the time spent making it together. Have you made any upcycled/creative toys lately? Feel free to comment below – I’d love to hear your crafty ideas!
