Playing is fun and learning can be too!

Paper Airplane Target! Ages 3+

This activity was a huge hit with the boys!!! They have been playing with it for days!  Kysen has been interested in counting by 10s, so we made the points in increments of 10.  They started off trying to get to 100.  Then they decided to see who can get to 1000.  This was so simple to make!

Poster Board
Paper Airplane 

First trace 5 different size circles onto the poster board.  I used dishes to trace the circles.  Then cut them out and write points next to the circles.  


Next fold a paper airplane.  Here is a great website that tells you how to fold paper airplanes if you don’t know how.  

Then hang your target up and try to throw the paper airplane through the holes for points.
