serious fun

This morning the local Filipino homeschool group
joined us for an aeronautics workshop

taught by Mark
(my intelligent and creative husband)

The kids had a great time experimenting with airflow

and Bernoulli's Principle,

and experiments with aerodynamics.

Then the older students branched off to make a variety 
of paper gliders to fly
(even the parents made a few!)


While the preschool students made their own fun,

learning the names of the parts of an airplane,


making roto-copters,


and watching them spin from way up as high as we could go!

The preschool grand finale was to make edible airplanes,

with a banana fuselage, graham cracker wings, a cookie tail, and
candy windows.

How sweet it is...

Okay, this one didn't quite look like an airplane,
but it was still some serious fun.

Thank you to the Homeschool Network 
and all of the wonderful families who attended today. 
 We were blessed by you!

Oh, that looks like super-duper fun! Last Friday, HS co-op kids made origami crane....I say never again. At least not for 40 kids anyway. LOVE the banana planes!

Super fun! Our 4 year old will enjoy making this and the almost 2 year old will enjoy eating it. I'm copying this idea! Love to you all!
