Summer Learning Series week 3: Airplanes and Jets

summer learning series with week 3 airplanes


Welcome to week three of our summer learning series. I was so happy when we woke up this morning and my kids asked what the theme for the week was. They were excited to hear that the theme is all about airplanes and jets! Here are some fun, high-flying projects, snacks and books to get you going. Remember these are just suggestions and we never intend for you to everything. Pick something that looks fun to you or use this as inspiration to choose your very own activity.


This theme is an easy one because you could simply have a picnic at the park and watch for airplanes to fly over. You could even make a chart to count how many you saw.


My boys love paper airplanes so we plan on making some and having a family night paper airplane races. If you don’t know how to make a paper airplane click HERE to find out how to make a simple one that flies really well.
