Hummingbird House Paper Plane Challenge

#HHPPC2017

The Story

"

One afternoon I watched a paper plane glide over our fence and land in the back yard. My eight year old son, Sam, ran downstairs and opened it up and on it was a written message from his friend Oscar. It read "can you come over and play please?"

Immediately Sam made a paper plane and flew it back with the message, "I’ll be there in two minutes." It was such a creative and beautiful way for two little boys to communicate a message to each other. And so, with this in mind the Hummingbird House Paper Plane Challenge was conceived."
