Over the weekend, my kids and I checked out the Ultimate Paper Airplanes for Kids book. This book is the ultimate collection of easy-to-fold, high-performance planes for kids who are fascinated by paper or origami airplanes. Can you imagine how much fun we had? I remember I love folding paper airplanes with my brothers when I was a little kid myself. We would fold up our favorite paper planes and see who can fly them the furthest! This book sure brings back lots of fun memories!
What I love most about this book is that it opens with a fascinating primer to the principles of flight. My kids read and learned about the forces that enable a plane to fly and affect the performance of their planes. They had so much fun testing out the planes they made by coaxing the planes through their paces: doing loops, barrel rolls, glides and dives.
This paper airplanes kit contains detailed instructions for each paper plane(12 designs in total), 48 pre-cut paper airplane models printed with colorful and realistic designs, over special durable lightweight cardstock. The instructions were easy to follow and the marked lines on the paper really make it easy to fold the perfect lines where they should be.
And what makes this book the ultimate? It has to be the pull-out airport runway for landing maneuvers! We were testing out the paper airplanes that we made and competing who can get the planes closest to the landing spot! It was such an educational and fun weekend for us. Yes, yours truly was included when I said “we” and “us”! I guess I’m just a big kid, after all! As you know, the holiday is fast approaching, this Ultimate Paper Airplanes for Kids book would be the perfect gift for the little ones. The best part is that you can create some new and fun memories with your kids because of this book!
