One of our families showed us how to make paper helicopters.
They are easy to make using few materials.
Use a small paper rectangle, fold it in half, open and then cut
in half to the fold. These are the helicopter blades.
Fold the blades in opposite direction of each other.
Now fold the corners of the other end in and attach a paper clip.
This doesn’t have to be exact.
Time to make them fly.
Lift as high as you can and let go. Watch it twirl to the ground.
We climbed to the top of the playground equipment and let them go.
Sometimes the wind would catch them and make them go farther.
We ran across the field and flew our helicopters over and over again.
Time flew by too as we easily spent an hour outside playing together.
