National Aviation Day falls on August 19th, but kids, especially boys, love airplanes any time of the year. Did you know that only 5% of the world’s population has ever been on a plane? There are over 14,000 commercial flights in the air at any one time! The United States alone lifts off about 29,000 domestic and international flights each day. Astounding isn’t it? In December of 1903 the Wright brothers were credited with inventing the world’s first successful airplane, although there had been numerous attempts before them. I wonder why Aviation Day isn’t in December? At any rate, I’ve put together some fun airplane crafts to make, so take to the skies and get crafting!
