Sometimes we shy away from doing crafts with our kids due to the need for pre-planning to ensure that you have all the items at hand to complete a project, so it is nice when you can find a quick easy craft that you can do at any given time. Today after the kids had their snack break, we went on to try to make some paper planes and see if we could fly them. We used the following website: http://www.paperairplanes.co.uk/planes.php and chose one of their designs to follow. We watched the video tutorial and paused at each step. The videos are really easy and simple to follow. Unfortunately for me, Abdurahman chose one of the more difficult planes to make, but it was fun to do, and it flew pretty well.
It was a nice, quick, easy task which required nothing but a piece of paper. The kids enjoyed flying their plane and this was a great task in listening and following directions. It kept them busy for almost an hour and was a good reminder for me that sometimes children find more fun in the simple things. We will definitely attempt to make some more planes, and try different variations, maybe even decorate them next time.
