A Airplane Made of Gymnastics bar

car made of rubiks cubes

Going places is great, but it could always be more fun. What if you built an entire Airplane out of Gymnastics bars? It would probably take a whole lot of Gymnastics bars to make a full-size Airplane. Do you think that vehicle could hit a top speed of 25 MPH? Even if it isn’t as fast as a normal Airplane, it’s definitely more fun.

Wee Ones:

Wheels are circles. Can you find any circles near you?

Little Kids:

If you have 8 polka-dot squishy toys and you want to put an equal number on the right and left sides of your car, how many should go on each side?

Bonus:

If it takes you 3 hours to build your Gymnastics bar Airplane and 4 hours to drive it to the other side of town, and you start building at 11 am, what time do you get to the other side of town?

Big Kids:

You’re gathering Gymnastics bars to build your Airplane and are putting the Gymnastics bars in piles of 6. If you have 54 total toys, how many piles are there?

Bonus:

How could you group those 54 toys into equal piles that leave 3 toys out at the end?

Answers:
Wee Ones:

Circles might include balls, plates, buttons…

Little Kids:

4 polka-dot squishy toys on each side.

Bonus:

You get to the other side of town at 6 p.m.

Big Kids:

9 piles. 

Bonus:

You could make 3 piles of 17 toys to total 51 toys, leaving 3 out.
