Paper airplane party
July 17, 2009
Watching an airplane soar through the sky can be an inspiring sight to see, but when that airplane is homemade out of paper, it can be even more exciting.
Making paper airplanes has remained a fun activity for kids of all ages and it's something party planners should take advantage of, especially with some parts of the country experiencing warmer temperatures thanks to summer.
First, create a paper airplane construction center (any long or large table will do) and place stacks of paper on it (the ones from the computer printer should be fine) as well as some markers and crayons in case your guests want to personalize their plane with a design.
Consider placing a how-to book on paper airplane construction on the table for those who may want to take a crack at a more advanced plane.
Once the planes are done, have everyone go outside to try out their new creations. As the day goes on, see if you can get the kids to create planes that do tricks, such as spin in a loop or ones that turn to the right or left.
As for snacks, play the role of an airline steward or stewardess and place the food in a small cart, asking the guests if they prefer ham or turkey on their sandwich.
