[Just Fly It :: Episode building the glider]
Throttle, Thrust, Take-off!
Think old school foam/wooden #glider#planes for #kids which come precut & easily fixed in mins (yes, just like the one Bray is holding in the last pic). Except that the #justflyitsg chuck #gliderworkshop takes these to a way higher level for kids 5yo & above. And 3 hours was deemed too short for us!
Opening with #flightbasics & #aerodynamics for the #kidslearning , Captain Joyce selflessly shared her personal #flying experience & snuck in numerous #flightterm in her story. In fact, her lively narration had gotten all the kiddos up & ready, before they even started their hands on the #craftwood sheets. Pretty surprised that Bel already knew some of the answers to what Captain Joyce asked, I was secretly happy to see her being so #attentive jotting down #notes -- must have some #learningpoints from any #holidayprogram right? (But no, don't get me wrong, there ain't any intensive #physics theory class going on here! If only my physics lectures were as fun back in school daze!)
The class went on to design & customise their very own gliders, bearing in mind to adhere to the #wingspan & #tipchord measurements as guided. I was hesitant to let Bel use the #penknife by herself but I was reminded by what she's been telling me frequently these days, "mommy, if u don't let me try, I'll never learn how to do it!" This tween, but she is right on many counts. Protective mommy me needs to let go & just let her try. Whatever mental barrier I had. After all, Captain Joyce gave very clear instructions & handling tips, what could go wrong (except to cut a finger or two! 🙈) if she had been paying attention & careful? And then she was happily sandpapering EVERY side of the wings & tail she cut, because it was her first time using a #sandpaper 😂
Indeed, that sense of #achievement was greater once she completed her glider! It was her glider, one that she carefully designed, coloured, cut & glued together. Love it how she thinks of her bro in her design...the two Bs -- B is for #BelandBray ! #❤
