I am constantly looking for new and easy things to keep my boys occupied.
I have to say that while I enjoy crafts…the mess that they generally leave behind is enough to keep me off the craft-wagon.
There are certain things, though, that hold boys interests, far beyond a puzzle or a box of crayons…paper airplanes are a prime example.
I have become quite the paper airplane master over the years, so when I saw this fun idea on Pinterest I KNEW I had to give it a go!
The link on Pinterest led me to a cute site called All for the Boys which is a lot of fun, by the way.
My boys and I sat down and made them together…it took about 5 minutes and they were busy for hours!
Here was our process:
You need an index card, a ruler, a straw and tape.
Cut the strips. Make one strip into a circle shape and tape it so it stays together. Then take the other two strips, lay them side by side and tape them together, THEN form them into a larger circle, like this…
Make sure to fly them small circle first !
