I think they boys have found their new favorite flyer! We came across this cardboard flyer from Flyerguy on Instructables. It's easy (which we love) and flies really, really well. I know it's a good one when they have to show Dad.
You can download the template from Instructables
Cut out and tape the template to some cardboard and cut again.
The launcher is a bobby pin and a rubberband
The boys launched it best by holding the rubberband - this helps support that little finger too. The cardboard does wear out a bit after a while.
It flies far and fast. It's actually pretty accurate too! SO fun! Thanks Flyerguy for a fun flyer!
