Pop, fold and fly sturdy paper airplanes with this easy origami kit.

Origami author Andrew Dewar rediscovered his childhood love of paper airplanes in Japan working with Yasuaki Ninomiya (creator of the famous White Wings planes). His designs are incredibly easy to assemble and his book not only explains how to make the origami planes, but how to tune them for better performance. He also gives tips on designing your own paper airplane models. All the paper folds are easy enough to be origami-for-kids projects and are a great way to learn Origami.

The helpful instruction book inside the kit provides clear, step-by-step folding instructions for each plane. All the planes are printed in full color on high-quality cardstock and precut so you just push out the pieces, fold them and staple them. The rubber band catapult launcher that is included makes the planes soar and swoop to great heights—which draws a crowd and keeps kids and adults entertained for hours. If one gets stuck in a tree or on the roof, just fold up another one and you're back in business. Get your kids running around outdoors flying paper airplanes in one minute flat!
