Klutz Paper Airplanes

Updated on July 16, 2011

Why Klutz Paper Airplanes is So Popular

The book "Klutz Paper Airplanes" is probably one of the most popular books about folding paper airplanes. And I can name at least 10 reasons for this.

Folding paper airplanes is fun even if you use plane white paper. The book takes it a step further by providing 40 sheets of colorful paper printed on both sides. The book is designed for children seven and up. The guides make it easy for children to follow the folds.That means more fun for the children and less frustration!

The book (10" x 12") teaches how to fold 10 awesome paper airplanes. There are 20 different patterns including wood grain, lose-it-on-the-lawn-grass, leopard prints and even hot rod flames. The paper airplanes are pictured below:
