This Activity is meant for Cub Scouts.
balsawood airplane kit for each player
This is a good half hour activity for any meeting.
Before punching out the pieces of the plane, players can color them with markers to customize their plane.
Have players carefully build the planes and then practice flying them.
After enough practice flight time, have contests for distance, flight time, accuracy, loop-de-loop, and others. Contests could be set up so there is a winner or each player wins that accomplishes the task.
Or, each player receives a token for accomplishing a task and the team with the most tokens gets a prize.
