Children from age three to teens enjoy flying paper aeroplanes, but few children know how to make them today. Here are a few instructions which may come in handy as a boredom buster or a cheap way to keep children entertained at home or on holiday. They are fascinated with the concept of flight and love to see whose plane can fly the furthest. The design below is for a basic plane (you will need to get involved until the age of approximately 6/7 years). Paper plane folding is a spatial planning and fine motor control activity. Many other designs and modifications can be made to improve the aerodynamics – just ask any dad. The secret to a good paper plane is in the accuracy of the folding.
