It’s Wednesday. The weekend feels so close yet still so far away. It’s that awkward post-nap, pre-dinner time of day. Your kidlets are revitalised and you should probably get them out of the house, but dinner won’t cook itself, so you’re racking your brain for a fun, and hopefully outdoor (weather permitting) activity. Enter the “Midweek Mini”! A quick little sumptin’ sumptin’ to keep everyone happy!

This week’s Midweek Mini is an homage to childhood in general.

PAPER AIRPLANES. It’s simple and old-fashioned, but man is it fun! The hours upon hours that my brother and I (and our neighbourhood friends) spent playing with paper airplanes!

If you need a refresher in paper airplane making, here’s the post for you. (If you need a refresher in paper airplane throwing… Ummm.) 😉

Toddlers will need quite a bit of help with the folding, but the older kidlets will quickly become paper airplane folding machines.

In our efforts to be environmentally friendly wherever and whenever we can, we’ll be using junk mail and credit card statements (hehe just kidding-but you know what I mean) to make our planes!

 

Happy flying!

Join the conversation! Did you ever make paper airplanes as a child?  I’d love to hear your memories!
