Basically, this game is played like a water-balloon or egg toss, only you use paper airplanes instead. So you’ll need plain paper or construction paper for this game. Here’s how you do it.
Have every person find a partner, and give each pair a few pieces of paper. Give them 5 minutes to fold their own paper airplane, and you can even let them design it if you want.
When the time for designing the planes is up, have the students form two lines that face each other. The throwers are all in one line and the catchers are all in the other line. Now the game continues in a similar fashion to the water-balloon or egg toss.
The thrower tosses the paper airplane to his/her partner. If the partner catches it, they stay in; if the partner misses the plane, they are both out. All of the teams who were successful stay in the game for round two. Only now, the thrower is the catcher and vice versa. Plus, they have to both take one step backward (thus making it harder for round two).
Keep going like this until one pair emerges as the victor.
