This is from a post that I did in March on my family blog, but thought it would be a good to share it here on this blog. It's a great activity for boys.
Isn't it funny how boys can be entertained with a simple paper airplane? J.D. and his grandad Ward used to play with paper airplanes every Sunday when we would go and visit him. Grandad would save the advertisements out of the paper and build airplanes for J.D. I hope this is something J.D. will always remember about him.
Mine are probably nowhere as cool as Grandads. After several failed attempts to make a plane that would actually fly and withstand a 3-year-old, I finally got on the internet to find out how to make one that would fly. And amazingly enough these did fly very well. The boys spent the whole afternoon playing with their paper planes. For all you other moms who have boys and want to impress them with your airplane flying abilities, check out this link for a short little video that walks you through the process step by step.
