Just in case you can't remember how to fold a paper airplane here is a little refresher in pictures. I think I missed one step in the pictures, but hopefully this will get you on track so you can have your own paper airplane
|Note, the pilot in my son's plane? They also learned about how far he could fly before autoeject takes place. :)|
We made our planes out of heavy duty cardstock because we wanted to anticipate the nose dives and hopefully save the plane for a little while. After doing several run throughs with the plane folded like the above pictures we made a few modifications including adding a paperclip and trying it closer to the nose versus middle versus rear; folding up the sides of the wings; and cutting slits in the back. We tried the rear slits folded up and folded down for different effects.
Cheap, easy, educational fun at its best.
