Posted on

Paper airplanes are one of the most classic childhood activities, and for good reason. They’re easy to make, requiring just a few simple steps and some supplies you likely already have around your house. In this tutorial, we’ll show you how to make a paper airplane using just a sheet of paper and someissors. Once you’ve learned how to do it, you’ll be able to entertain yourself for hours on end by making all sorts of paper airplanes!

What you need

To make a paper airplane, you need:

-A sheet of paper
-A pencil
-A ruler
-A plane (or other object to serve as the wings and body)

Step 1: Draw a basic design on your sheet of paper.
In this example, the plane has a simple rectangular shape with two small wings attached at the top and bottom.
Don’t worry too much about the precise details – you can come back and finalize your design later. Just make sure it looks like something that could fly!
Step 2: Using your ruler and scissors, cut out the design. Try not to make too many cuts – you’ll want to be able to easily reconstruct your plane if necessary.
Step 3: Fold each wing in half along the crease that runs along its length, then unfold them again. Do this twice more, for a total of four folded wings.
Step 4: Place one folded wing on top of each side of the body of your plane, making sure they’re positioned evenly. Then use the remaining two wings to hold everything in place while you gently press down on the folds tosecure them.
Step 5: Finally, place the plane on a flat surface and allow it to dry. You’re done!

How to make the paper airplane

For those of you who haven’t tried it, making a paper airplane is something fun to do. It’s a great way to get some exercise and have some fun at the same time. Here are some tips on how to make a paper airplane:

1. Get a piece of paper that is about 18 inches by 24 inches.
2. Draw a design on the paper and cut it out.
3. Fold the paper in half so that the crease is in the middle.
4. Open up the fold and unfold the paper so that it is 18 inches by 24 inches again.
5. Draw another design on the paper and cut it out.
6. Fold the paper in half so that the crease is in the middle again, and repeat steps 3-5 until you have made all your designs.
7. Take one of your folded papers and place it down on top of one of your drawn designs so that the edges are touching. Make sure that the design is facing outwards so that it will be easy to fly with later on.
8. Hold onto both ends of the folded paper and pull them towards you until they meet in the middle, forming a V-shape (orany other shape you want).
9. Put one end of the straw into the V-shaped opening and hold onto the other end of the straw. Now slowly pull the straw out of the V-shape, and let go of the ends of the paper.
10. Hold onto the ends of the paper and hold them up so that they are in line with each other, then quickly release them and watch your paper airplane fly away!

Tips for flying the airplane

To make a paper airplane, you will need: a sheet of paper, scissors, and a ruler.

1. Measure the length of the airplane you want to create and cut the sheet of paper to that size.

2. Draw a line down the center of the sheet of paper.

3. Fold the bottom third of the sheet up so that it covers the line you drew in step two. Then fold up the remaining two thirds of the sheet, so that your folded-up edge is right on top of your drawn line.

4. Cut along the folded line. You now have a half-plane folded in half.

5. Repeat steps 3 and 4 to create the other half of your airplane.
