Paper Airplanes Book Giveaway and Dad's Day Giveaway Hop

Do you have a single paper airplane you make and that is all you've been making for who knows how many years? When I was in college, I took a technical writing class and had to write instructions on how to make a paper airplane. Instead of doing the most common one I was sure everyone else would do, I learned how to make a different kind. I've been making it ever since and my son loves it. These books basically take that lesson to a new extreme.

What we have here is a review of the three books from Tuttle Publishing, a giveaway for the same three books, and a giveaway hop for Dad's Day. Don't miss out on visiting other blogs to see what they have to offer for the hop. The paper airplane related books from Tuttle are not limited to just these three. They have over a dozen available.

Some time ago, I did a review of a motorized paper airplane called PowerUp 3.0. The paper airplanes you create in these books have no motor, but you definitely have to test your paper folding, aka origami, skills. Most boys won't be interested if you call it origami, but if you call it paper airplane folding, they'll love it. Depending upon which book you're working with, it may be origami you're doing, or you may be popping out the precut parts to an airplane that in turn needs to be put together as the high performance airplane designed.
There is nothing wrong with pre-cuts, especially since the final results look so much better than just folding plain white paper but consider what you're really looking for in a final result when picking which of the books to get.

The origami found in these books are a great level for my ten-year old. He's able to follow the instructions well and the topic keeps his interest, unlike an earlier origami attempt which he did well but quickly lost interest. For the summer, don’t just let your kids sit in front of video games all day. Let dad have fun with them and keep the kids busy this summer with these paper airplane books and kits. They’ll be having fun, all while keeping their brains active and learning some great STEM skills…shhhh, don’t tell them!

The giveaway is for the trio of books shown at top:

  14. I would love to be able to do the Amazing Origami but I would be better able to start with Origami Fun for Kids. I lived in Asia for a while and I was amazed at all the things the young people made there but I want to start slow so I can impress my grandchildren with my skills.
