Green helicopters crash

Green helicopters

Do you know these maple seeds as helicopters? A childhood thing…. Or maybe no longer….

Anyway, these have crashed and are now earthbound….

    The green ones are the ones you can stick on your nose. Split the end where the seed is, then apply the two tabs to your nose. The brown ones are the ones that helicopter. I’ll have to do some empirical research into how the red maple ones do, but our tree isn’t that far along yet.

    Cheers for childhood science!

    They will always be known as helicopters to me!
