Boomerangs are the kind of toy that’s just dangerous enough to add a little extra fun to an afternoon. You need to be careful throwing one, but making a boomerang brings an extra measure of joy to the venture. Over the years I’ve made some very effective boomerangs from 1/4″-thick hardwood plywood, and you can, too. It’s a great project to do with any kids in your life.
My design flies like crazy, so be sure to use them in a big space. And yes, they really do curve back towards you if you throw them right. Boomerangs work especially well when you throw them into a light breeze.
