After school the other day, one of my fellow pedagogues threw a paper airplane at me. It got serious airtime. I’d forgotten totally about it until (somehow) I ended up on Ken Blackburn’s site this morning. This guy holds the Guinness World Record for keeping a paper airplane aloft: 27.6 seconds. Yowza.
In service to the public, here is a recipe for building a simple, effective airplane to get you started on your way to breaking Blackburn’s record..you know, just in case you don’t have enough to do.
You need to make one of these while wearing this while you shoot this. Personally, I’m a big fan of the Goodbye Kitty series. These are featured on my white board at school. (Helen knows just what gifts to give. Possibly my all-time fave from her is my beloved “Cat-a-pult” kitten launcher. Awesome.)
I must admit, though. I love cute bunnies.
All right. Back to the real world. Have a great week…and happy birthday to Mavis!
