Paper airplanes take off!

Today’s special storytime theme was paper airplanes.  After reading the book I’m Here by Peter H. Reynolds, we got to work on our own creations:

Some of the kids used photocopied calendar templates to make their airplanes and others were fine with just a blank sheet of paper.  Here’s a great site with step-by-step video instructions if you’d like to make your own paper airplanes: http://www.paperairplanes.co.uk/

Here are some of the finished products from today’s session:

After we were done folding, we took advantage of a once in a lifetime opportunity and launched our paper airplanes from the library’s balcony!

Do you have a tip for making the ultimate paper airplane?  Feel free to share your suggestions in the comments 🙂
