How to make a dart paper plane

Making paper planes is a simple paper activity for kids that leads to fun outdoor games as they fly their paper airplanes. This simpe dart paper plane design is a truly speedy flyer.

What you need:

  • 1 x A4 sheet of paper

Number of players:


Watch the video tutorial to find out how to make a dart design paper plane.

Start by folding the sheet in half lengthways. Open it out.

Fold the top left corner down to the centre crease (the classic paper plane fold).

Fold the top right hand corner down to the centre.

Take the left side and fold it to the centre crease to make steeper diagonal angle.

Do the same on the right.

Fold the left hand side to the centre again, for an even steeper diagonal.

Do the same on the right.

Now fold each side in to the centre again, for the final time.

Flip it over (so that the blank side is facing up) and fold it in half along its length.

Now pop out the wings, pinch the fuselage and give it a whirl!

You can throw the dart fast and hard but make sure you give it lots of air, as it has minimal wing area to keep it up.
