National Paper Airplane Day

National Paper Airplane Day

Let your inner child fly. National Paper Airplane Day is celebrated every year on May 26 to commemorate the fanciful aeronautical toy. Paper airplanes have fascinated children and adults alike around the globe for generations. The day is usually celebrated with contests in two basic flight categories: distance and time in air. The practice of constructing paper planes is sometimes referred to as aerogami, after origami, the Japanese art of paper folding. Crafting paper planes is said to have originated out of ancient China, but the art is said to have been perfected out of Japan.

A. They let us get artistic
There aren’t many excuses in this modern life to let your inner artist out, but making a paper airplane is one of them! Folding and decorating a paper airplane is the perfect opportunity to bring out your arts and craft kit. Get crafty! Personalize your paper plane with paint, markers, crayons, glitter — the sky is the limit.

B. It doesn’t take technology to participate
We could all use a few minutes away from our smart phones and computers. Building a paper airplane allows you to unplug from technology, relax, get outside, and get some fresh air. (But if you must bring your phone, it makes a great Snapchat story.)

C. It’s a great way to relive your childhood
Time flies. Remember those sunny Saturday afternoons you spent with your best friend in the park? Sometime life can be hectic, but building a paper airplane can take you back to those days you flew paper airplanes with your BFF and had ice cream afterward.
