Are you guys paper airplane makers? Well, I have to admit that I was never very good at paper airplane making. I have always had one style of plane, you probably know it, you know, that very basic 3-fold airplane that doesn't really fly too well, sigh. Well, this whole summer Noah has been really into paper airplanes and flying. Oy! Not up my alley but I was happy to show him my lame plane making skills anyways. That is until this book showed up...
Each plane comes with a chart at the top of the page showing difficulty level, if the plane is good of indoor or outdoor flying, and a throw chart showing you the best angles to throw it. Noah really liked the charts to compare the different planes with :-)
The Klutz Book of Paper Airplanes
Making paper airplanes doesn't feel like science. And it's not quite art. Near as we can figure, launching a regular old piece of paper into the sky so that it soars is pure magic. We present step-by-step instructions for folding aerobatic amazement's. The ten airplanes in this book are the best we've ever seen. This big (10" x 12") book comes complete with 40 sheets of flight-tested, ready-to-fold paper, printed on both sides in a variety of 20 colorful patterns, including leopard print, wood grain, hot rod flames and lose-it-on-the-lawn grass. It's everything you need to rule the skies.
Comes With: 40 sheets of custom-designed paper
For ages 7 and up
