Workshops and Glider “Totes”
When conducting a workshop have a few gliders ready for flying so you can demonstrate the concept and let people try. It helps to have a helper or two. If not, try and recruit one from the workshop crowd.
Have a few pieces of cardboard ready so a few people can be coached at a time. If younger children are present it is helpful to make some paper planes as well.
Once people are having fun and understand flying, you can start making the gliders.
Some kids may want to decorate them with markers.
Bring some of these glider totes for carrying for transporting the gliders home! Print it on 8.5×11″ paper, fold and glue and presto! Glider Tote
Children who enjoy decorating the gliders may want to decorate their tote as well.
Different people at different ages will enjoy the activity differently. By having the paper planes, gliders and totes, your party will have a richer eco-system of activities and different types of engagement.
