As you may know sometimes I like bragging on my kids on this here website. It’s a mother’s prerogative. It’s the beauty of owning a blog. It’s totally shameless. And I’m about to do it again.
Not too long ago we had some dear friends staying with us. Among them were four boys. Among those four boys were a handful who, along with my son, liked making paper airplanes. They made about 100 paper airplanes that week. One of their favorite models came out of this book.
I believe it was called The Bulldog Dart.
My son however made a few alterations and the result was something that flies about as fast as a real live rocket. The first time I saw it fly, it was flying towards me. And I screamed. And dove out of the way as it spun like a corkscrew, coming at me at about 50 miles an hour.
As a school assignment I recently asked my boy to write up some instructions on how to make this amazing paper aircraft. And that is what I’m about to share with you now. Somehow I doubt that even if I did follow his meticulous instructions mine would go anywhere near as dangerously fast.
