4. Paper Airplane Competition
This is one of the most important skills you can teach your child. I spent much time in awe at classmates who could build paper airplanes that not only looked slick but flew from one side of the room to the other.
For starters, you could help your child make this one, considered the best paper airplane in the world:
Then, when everyone has exactly the same airplane, go outside and see who can fly them the best.
After that, ask them if they’d like to make one different from everyone else. There’s no doubt the answer will be, “Yes.” If you have materials ready, kids can pick out what plane they want to make, decorate it, and then once again compete for first place in your home’s air rally.
