Styrofoam gliders

Guess what?  We won the lottery.  Then we took our winnings and purchased a small fleet of planes.

Ok, ok, ok.  I'm just kidding.  We didn't win the lottery, but Chuck and I are the proud new owners of three airplanes, Styrofoam gliders, to be exact.

One of the nicest things about being a mom is that I get to let go and do fun kid things again.  Currently, Chuck is still too young to fully appreciate flying toy airplanes.  However, he is old enough to enjoy throwing things and seeing them float around.

Armed with leftover Styrofoam plates, I made him some Styrofoam gliders.  Then we had a lovely day enjoying the sunny weather, the company of some feathered friends, and our new gliders.

(Psst- If you want to make your own, you can get the templates from NASA here  and here.)
