Flight School by Nanny Anita

This flight school is a great way to spend a screen free rainy day during the summer if you have run out of ideas.  In our latest activity we took to designing our own planes and testing out our designs and then competing to see which plane travelled the farthest down our runway.

Make sure you follow my activities board on Pinterest for more ideas.  Don’t forget to save the pin for later.


To do your own flight school you will need:

  • Paper
  • Scissors
  • Tape
  • Pencils
YC adding some finishing touches

Get your little ones to design and test out their planes; I encouraged YC to really think about what a plane might need to fly and that once she had tested it out she could always make changes to it.

Our predictions

Not only did we use paper planes, but we also tested out a couple of toy ones to see how they would compare.

Once everyone had put their finishing touches to their aircrafts, we lined them all up and made predictions about which one we thought would travel the farthest.  Turned out that none of us made the right prediction.

It was really interesting to see how both EC and YC approached making their planes, EC had some fabulous ideas about adding boosters to his to make them to further.
