Paper Airplanes

 Today for our craft we made different types of paper airplanes. Asher and I colored some yesterday and today we flew some outside. We wanted to see which one would go the furthest.
 Unfortunately I am not the world's best paper airplane maker so none of them went very far.
We all just enjoyed being outside. It has been in the 60's outside and the kids love it.


  1. I love this! Very fun. You can get some good designs for free online, I'm sure... and this so reminds me of Nate and Micah when they went through their plane/jet phases, getting very technical like weighting parts of the plane for longer distance or for curvature in flight... Way to go, Al...this is a "craft" that's a keeper, developing coordination in the paper folding and in the throwing...developing dream-weaving in how their planes can be bettered and how far and high they can go each time... science mentality building as they work through the problems of flight...or is that engineering... and well....go Al go...and get Nate to work with them....he was really really good making paper planes and paper jets... Yaaaahoooooooooo!

  2. Looks like fun! My kids love throwing them down the stairs :)
