How To Make A Paper Airplane – #DisneyPlanes Printables

Today I forgot how to make a paper airplane. My 5-year-old asked me to make her a paper airplane and the ones I folded were terrible.

Then I remembered our friends at Disney just emailed us a set of awesome Paper Airplane Printables featuring Disney’s new movie Planes.

How To Make A Paper Airplane

I love that each of the six different airplanes are folded slightly differently and when you print the templates on a color printer, they look so fabulous! Julia’s favorite plane is Rochelle and Sophia’s top pick is Ishani.

Hint… Learning Opportunity

There are lots of ways to turn playing with paper airplanes into a learning activity.

  1. Measure the distances the planes fly. For older children, convert the measurements from metric into imperial or the other way around.
  2. Compare the distances using subtraction and write out the mathematical equations.
  3. Introduce the topic of physics and depending on your children’s age, discuss aspects of flight.

Use these Disney’s Planes paper airplane templates to print, fold and fly the best paper airplanes.

We had such fun playing with these paper airplanes. I was amazed how far and fast they flew.

(As you may notice, these printables were intended for a Father’s Day Activity… and they would be perfect for an activity with dad. But for single moms like myself, don’t worry, you and your kids will love this activity.)

My girls are now counting down the days until Disney’s Planes movie hits theatres.
