it's amazing with all the advanced technology available to entertain kids... how simply mesmerizing the paper airplane still is to them. my kids have been flying planes for the last hour. it never gets old! oh, the endless possiblities... racing each other, hitting the ceiling, seeing who can land it in the silliest place. we have a book of paper planes, which is fun because you can compare all the different kinds and many are designed to withstand outside play.... but for an afteroon inside, a simple little glider will do.
you can see it helps it go better if you make the "airplane noise" while it's flying!
don't you want to join us?! here is the simple origami plane we made, try it for yourself!
we plan to try these paper beeswax origami boats next...
