We love paper plane making! Making planes seems to appeal to both boys and girls and wide range of ages. Just take out some paper at a weekend BBQ and you will have the big kids (ie. adults) involved in who can design and create the plane that can fly the furthest!
You may have read my post two years ago about paper planes where I showed you how to make the "acrobatic" plane. Read it HERE if you missed it!
Paper plane making is really a wonderful way to work on fine motor manipulation, visual planning and sequencing skills. I use paper planes in therapy sessions to work on these things as well as using it as a writing prompt. You may prompt your kids with "Where is the plane going?", "Who is on the plane?", "What type of plane is this and what does it carry?", "What will the plane need to fly?". "What can the people do on the plane during the flight?" or "What can the pilot see during the flight?"
This time I have step by step instructions for you to make TWO more super planes! Find the instructions below and download your FREE COPY of the instructions as aPDF file HERE.
I hope these planes bring you and your kids hours of entertainment! Let me know if you try them out!
