This activity takes paper airplanes to the next level! While the fun of building a paper airplane encourages creativity, add a target for the airplane to land on and it focuses your family's creativity to reach higher to build an engineering masterpiece! Take the activity up a notch more by downloading this FREE paper airplane runway (link in my profile) and see who can land on it with the most accuracy! Then take the chance to talk about how, as with this game, having a specific goal helps us channel our efforts to reach our best abilities.

This activity helps your family focus on slowing down and finding the right balance in their lives. The activity is simple: gather some rocks from your yard and use them to create a cairn (often used as a landmark in hiking to help you and others know you’re on the right path). For added meaning, paint the rocks in a way that symbolically represents the landmark changes happening in your life right now.
