Elliot is obsessed with paper airplanes at the minute. Every remotely foldable piece of anything is handed to me: ‘Please make into paper airplane, Mummy?’
I’ve used magazine subscription inserts, construction paper, pages torn from Anthropologie catalogues – anything and everything. My own paper airplane engineering skills were clearly not doing it anymore, so I turned to Google. As you do.
My favourite designs are two from this site – the Eagle and the High Glider. The High Glider, in particular, is great for the rather non-specific way in which three year olds throw planes. Judicious bits of washi tape hold it together through the many throwings.
What’s your favourite way to fold a paper airplane?
