Paper Airplane Saturday

Paper Airplane Saturday

My husband and I are always looking for fun, NEW things to do with the kids that are inexpensive and can keep our 3 kids entertained for longer than 5 minutes. Have you guys ever tried making paper airplanes with your kids? They sound almost too easy of a craft to do, it seems every time I go on Pinterest the kids activities are getting more and more complicated. Fun, but complicated. I love that all this consists of is paper. That’s it!  Paper Airplane Saturday | Just One Mommy's Opinion

Now days, all kids want to do is sit in front of the T.V., play with their xbox’s, or play with Ipads, mine included. It’s hard to get them to want to go play outside. We don’t have a front yard or a  backyard, it’s a very small house right there on the street with all of the other houses crammed together (part of us trying to save money right now is sacrificing house size, read about it here). So basically, our kids can only play in the street while we are closely watching them. Not ideal. So any excuse to walk to the park when the weather is nice is a must!

This past Saturday, we decided to do a fun craft with the kids and take them to the park! We looked online and found awesome paper airplane designs online and went from there! The kids grabbed some printer paper and we made about 10-15 airplanes, different designs and different sizes. They are so quick to make! Then, we headed to the park…

Please enjoy our pics from our family excursion. And go do this with your kids immediately, they will love it!
