"FOLDED"

The theme this week by Kathy is "Folded". Mac, Kathy, Craver, Lew and I have a little contest to show a new theme header each week. We now post anytime before 4 PM EDT on Wednesdays and voting begins after that.

The theme brought one memory from the past that you don't see anymore. We used to make our own toys and one was "Folded" from a piece of paper. You could fly them, fight them and chase them. Yes, it was a Folded airplane. This one is flying in front of my wall art.
 You would start with a piece of paper and fold it in half.
You would then fold from the top corner two or three times.
This one was folded three times.
You then folded back a top wing back to give it lift. It was then folded and ready to fly.
See what the others show on my side bar.

My students made these all the time. Gr. 5 we did a flight unit! Great memories!
Cheers from Cottage Country!

Cool! Extra points for the step-by-step instructions. I'm thinking that this paper will turn into precious metals for the week's contest.

Those step-by-step photos take longer than one thinks; I've done it with a menu I was preparing. Whew. Lots more to it that it looks like.
I remember folding and flying paper airplanes. In fact, my son (who will be 37 this summer) can fold an airplane that looks amazing!
Hugs to you,
Jackie

I recently read a book in which paper airplanes figured into the plot. Step-by-step instructions were good idea. I don't believe I have ever made a paper airplane.
