The Greatest Toy Ever Folded aka Paper Airplanes

The latest and greatest toy in our household is the simple (and sometimes not-so-simple) paper airplane. It all started when one of my son’s daycare teachers folded him a paper airplane.

He was clutching it in his filthy little hands when I picked the children up from the play yard at daycare. I could hear him yelling, “Mommy look!” as he barreled down the hill towards the gate. His little sister was stumbling behind, with a crumpled piece of paper in her hands.

“See my airplane!” he screamed as he shoved the folded blue paper in my face. “Can we play airplanes when we get home?”

And now, weeks later, their favorite game is still throwing paper airplanes around the room. We have dozens of them scattered around the house, all different shapes, sizes and colors. Daddy even took the time to look up different models and instructions online so that they wouldn’t all be the same.

There is nothing I love better than a cheap (free) toy that keeps the kids occupied for hours. Even when it means being caught in the crossfire of objects flying across the room.

About dirtyrottenparenting

I'm a parent of two lovely (most of the time) children. I work full time out of the home and I don't cook well, bake, sew, or do crafty things. I keep my high heels and jewelry at my office because there's no point in having them at home. I love Mondays because I can return to the world of adults, go to the bathroom alone and have nearly uninterrupted conversations with others.

  1. I discovered one evening that my kids, much like a cat, will chase lights. We have a blast with the flashlight 😉
