Intentional Activity:

Electric Airplane

A small styrofoam airplane with a small electric motor can be a simple tool to spend fun quality time together!

Little, inexpensive toy airplanes are extremely durable and loads of fun! With a rechargeable battery, they can continually be used and can take quite the beating.

Chase it around and try to catch it before it hits the ground! The battery seems to last about ~30 minutes but recharges quickly so you can get back out and play!

- Try to throw it back and forth to each other.
- Adjust the tail flaps and see if you can make it do back flips!

However you play with it, it will have you laughing and enjoying time together!

NOTE: They can travel pretty far, so be sure you have plenty of space or you might want to fly it at a local park.
