Your kids have been making paper airplanes since they were knee-high to a grasshopper, but have they been getting any better? Can theirs stay aloft for 20 seconds? You can make superior airplanes easily and the miracle of it all is that it doesn’t require any more/new/different material than what you are using right now!
If there was ever a lesson in the nature of how intelligence can invest value into raw materials, then making better paper airplanes will deliver it to your kids.
