I love this idea but it needs a few tweaks to be great. Neevah and I had a lot of fun but Liam (4) got quickly frustrated. What would I change? If we were going to try this again I would mark out a large landing zone on the ground with chalk or coloured tape rather than using a basket. The high sides on the basket made it hard to get the plane into the landing zone and Liam had to stand quite close and aim downwards to make a successful landing.
I will give instructions for how we played as it would work well for older children but if you are playing with little ones I would recommend tweaking the landing zone to something a bit larger with no sides.
You will need
Crayons or similar
A Laundry Basket
What to do
1. Ask you child to colour in or draw a picture on the paper - this helps you to tell the planes apart
2. With the picture side down fold the paper into a paper plane. You can find instructions here
3. Make a sign to say landing zone and attach it to the laundry basket
4. Time to play - Aim of the game is to get your plane in the basket
Lining up to have a turn
Success! Neevah got her plane into the basket
