Phun – Paper Airplanes

Instead of coming back with what sounds like profound wisdom after my recent hiatus, I’m sharing a way to enchant children, and even a few adults.

Nothing can alleviate a child’s boredom quicker than a terrific paper airplane. When my youngest grandson asked for an airplane, Daddy and Papa were both busy doing other things; the task was up to me. I tried to fold a rendition of what I thought a paper airplane should be…it looked good…but flew like a piece of lead. Hmmm…what to do? Search Youtube of course!

I found this sensational five-minute video, followed along, pausing when I was behind, and OH MY, created a paper airplane that really FLEW and SOARED. I impressed everyone, including myself, with this small paper aircraft. We tried it in various weights of paper, all did well. Give it a try! I guarantee not only will children be impressed, but so will adults. Happy Flying!

    1. I am the same Susie, the one I made without the directions looked okay and was miserably unable to soar. No…didn’t do much cleaning in the blog or the house. :/ Oh well…I really must though or I will run out of room for photo storage and I really don’t want to put money into the WordPress coffers…I already have to pay to keep ads off the site. So good to hear from you…thanks Susie!

  1. Good for you! I am a big fan of paper airplanes and as children we often had races to see whose would fly the furthest.
    As a learning support teacher, I am shocked to find that children nowadays don’t seem to have a clue as how to make them and I use Origami as a means to pratice fine motor skills with them. The boys love making them and having a race against the teacher afterwards!
    I bet you all had a great time! 👍
