This week on our Mom Tip Tuesday post we shared a video for a paper airplane target that can be made fairly easily with a large piece of cardboard and some supplies. We also had some guests in the studio to help us. Josiah and Micheal showed us how to make two very different paper airplanes to use with our "Flight School" paper airplane target. The fun that ensued after was priceless.
When I host a KID Video Series project, I strive for the ages of about 5 to low teens or games the entire family can join in to create fun, long lasting memories. I had no idea that these two guys would go on and play and experiment long after I turned in for the night.
Not only did they modify their paper airplanes to figure what worked best (the weighted plane made it more often after Micheal folded wings on each side) but that led to some creative "Fan flight". By the time Gabrielle caught up with them, they had turned a fan on it's side, pivoting it to be parallel to the floor and turned it on to see how it would effect the flight. My guys are all grown up, but I still love when a project goes beyond me and becomes something of their own.
Here are a few cell phone images caught from their shenanigans!
