My son, Cory, loves to make paper airplanes and helicopters. He can make about nine different designs on his own. After making the airplanes, he likes to go outside and fly them. He challenges himself by trying to catch the planes after releasing them. If you have a child with similar interests, then this post may be a treat for you. We are going to show you how to do an easy straw activity for kids. This is a fun paper airplane alternative for kids.
This activity is called the Straw Glider. Below is what you need…
You most likely have all the items above in your home currently. It will take you about ten minutes to build from start to finish. It is the perfect straw activity for kids.
You can fly this Straw Glider like a paper airplane. It is best to fly outdoors. This STEAM/STEM activity is perfect for preschoolers, kindergarten, elementary students and up.
In the video below, we show you step by step how to make it. You will see Cory outside flying the Straw Glider. The video comes from my son’s YouTube channel, Corban’s Fun Learning Adventures. Please subscribe if you like what you see.
Have fun with this activity!
