Join the fun: Let's soar together on World Play Day with paper plane building

Encourage your child’s creativity and imagination by joining us in building paper planes for World Play Day! It is simple yet, a fun activity that the whole family can enjoy together. Simply send the instructions home with your children and parents can spend some quality time together with their children folding and flying paper planes. A good time to practice before World Play Day.
