May 26: National Paper Airplane Day

National Paper Airplane Day celebrates that favorite classroom activity, memo delivery system, and boredom buster . . . the paper airplane!

Some people go crazy creating special designs, measuring distance traveled, and checking airtime. If that’s you, more power to you. Post a picture in a comment because I’d love to see it. However, you can still participate in Paper Airplane Day with just a couple of basic folds. You can find directions for folding a basic plane (and my current favorite) here.

I haven’t been able to find any information on who created this holiday or why they chose May 25, but a paper airplane contest seems like a great barbecue activity during this Memorial Day weekend.

Sing to the Lord with thanksgiving;
make music to our God on the harp.
He covers the sky with clouds;
he supplies the earth with rain
and makes grass grow on the hills.

Psalm 147:7-8
