End of the Year - Gliders

Seusstastic Classroom Inspirations is having a linky party called:

Well, since the end of the year just happened, I can remember some of the things that happened :)
{Other things just happened in a blur!}

One of the things we did on the last day was make paper airplanes - whoops, no, no - we made
Paper Gliders!

{Here is the most boring picture in the world of a paper glider! You can say thank you later.}

I have an origami book that I use for instructions. They are very similar to THIS.

I do not use plain white and obviously boring {see picture above} paper. I went to Hobby Lobby and bought one of their huge sets of scrapbooking paper - $20, $10 with a coupon. And I use that. It's much prettier and nonboring!

So we made the paper airplanes - no, no, Gliders! and then I let the kids fly them in the room. First I had all the girls, then the boys, then my kids all have numbers - so all the odds, then the evens. Then 1 - 11 and then 12 -21. It was a blast! They really enjoyed getting to fly airplanes - no, no Gliders! in the room and it was a great 30 minute project.  

I'm looking forward to finding some great ideas and filing them away for next year. If you are interested in more end of the year activities, check out the linky party at Seusstastic Classroom

Have a great day! Mine will be spent indoors while the great outdoors hits 100!
