Have you seen the fabulous Australian movie Paper Planes? If you did then your kids (like mine) may be inspired to make their own paper planes. Like us, you may have found your supply of white A4 paper disappearing constantly. Even if you haven’t seen the movie paper plane making is a great creative activity for kids to do, and perfect for a rainy day. All you need is some A4 paper – I buy the cheapest ream of paper you can find in the shops. My kids like to have a paper plane competition and see how far each plane can fly down the hall from the same spot.
To get you started and for great tips, including easy to follow videos, check out the Paper Planes movie website here.
The real paper pilots Dylan and James whom the movie was inspired by, share some flying tricks too.
