With only a few sheets of paper, you and your child can have so much fun folding and flying your paper airplanes.

Look up video tutorials on folding methods, setup a throwing line, measure the distance of each plane. The options are endless!

Next Level: Get a pack of paper clips and create a challenge to see not only who's plane can travel the furthest distance, but which plan can carry the most paper clips!
