The Flying  Challenge

What can you find to make something that flies?

Today’s challenge can be done with something as simple as a piece of A4 paper or you could go more elaborate with polystyrene, balloons, balsa wood and rubber bands! What can you find to make something that flies?

It doesn’t have to be plane-shaped. It could be any shape. You can research ideas to find inspiration and see what the options could be.
