Paper Plane Air Show

Poster board, construction paper and Sharpie landing strip.
Cost me less than 25 cents to make.
The planes are named words from the song we sang (My Country, verse 2).
Naming the planes was helpful for when we "kept score".
Traffic controller sticks (toilet paper tubes!)

This idea was inspired after attending the Air Show at the Air Force Base nearby. We did idea #2.

Put landing strip on the ground and...

Idea #1:
  1. Choose child to throw the plane on the landing strip.
  2. Whatever # area the plane lands in, sing that way (MARCHING, SALUTE, HAND ON HEART...)
  3. Repeat

Idea #2:
  1. Choose three older children to be the "score keepers"
  2. Write the names of the planes on the board
  3. Sing
  4. Choose a child to throw the first plane
  5. Give that plane it's points (if it didn't land on the runway we gave it 5 points)
  6. Repeat for the next plane. And so on.
