Christmas Paper Airplane
I’m really impressed by this Christmas-themed paper airplane designed by an eight-year-old boy! Two layers of thick cardstock, staples, and tape make this plane durable, but still good at flight! I especially love the candy-cane striping and holly berry accents. My favorite part: the arrow addition of the missing letter “R” in “CHRISTMAS!” Creative kids are the best!!!

The book that taught us all our paper airplane designs

We’ve really enjoyed the paper airplane kit called, “Incredible Paper Airplanes” by Ken Blackburn and Jeff Lammers. It was a Christmas gift originally purchased from Barnes and Noble but also available on Amazon. The book teaches you how to make 20 model airplanes and there are 84 printed papers ready to be cut and folded. It’s really a great paper airplane kit!
