DIY Straw Paper Airplane

I don’t know about any other moms out there, but I am seriously lacking in my paper airplane making skills. I know because my five year old told me so. This method of paper airplane making is one I can actually do! It’s so easy and the kids will be thrilled that the plane actually flies.
