Consider these airplane note carriers the “paper airplane 2.0”. Not only do they fly beautifully, they can hide secret messages in their paper straw compartment. Who doesn't love a top secret message?! These little flyers are the perfect size for sticking in a lunch box. We made two versions of the airplane printables: one in fun colors and one blank for coloring in! Print out the blank version and include some crayons or colored pencils in your littles' lunch boxes to encourage extra creativity. Bombs away! Let's get started!

Before you get started, you will need to first fold your paper airplane and print off the secret messages. You have 3 design options. The secret messages are included with each printable. The Kids scissors will work great, for little hands, to cut out the paper airplanes template!
After you have folded your airplane, then you can add the secret message compartment
Creating the Secret Message Paper Airplane:
1. Fold your paper airplane.
2. Trim a paper straw to the length of your airplane. The Amplify® Mixed Media Shears will power through the straw with ease. (We advise only adults use these very sharp shears.)
2. Hot glue the straw to the paper airplane. We did one dot at the front and back.
3. Roll up the secret note as tightly as you can and slip inside the straw.
Zoom! Your kids will love these paper airplanes so much they’ll want to make them with you for their own lunches! Enjoy!
