Paper Plane Derby

Report Copyright Infringement View in OSM UK View in OSM NZ


Make paper airplanes and aim that at targets, longest distance etc. We play the following;
Paper Airplane Basketball - You can use a real basketball hoop, or set up a bin or hoop and see who is the best shot with a paper airplane. Try making adjustments to the same plane and shooting from different positions.
Target Shooting - Set up a target. A toy, a bell, a hoop, a ring, whatever you wish. Then take turns hitting the target from different locations.
Distance contests - Use masking tape or stationary objects to mark distance and see who can throw a plane the farthest.
Time Afloat contests - Use a stopwatch and see who is able to keep a paper airplane in the air the longest.
