My kids, who are 4 and 6, just discovered paper airplanes. These airplanes have now entertained them for a whole day and 1/2. As I helped them fold the paper this morning, I realized how strange it is that they never had a paper airplane before. Of the 3 1/2 years that I stayed home with them, I never thought of making a paper airplane, though I searched high and low for ways to entertain them. It reminded me that in a world full of high-tech iPad games, and complicated, expensive toys and crafts, sometimes the best ideas are the simplest and we often forget that.
Are you looking for a good idea? Maybe the answer is as simple as a paper airplane.
