Making paper planes

Make a paper plane that can actually fly with these easy instructions. This traditional paper-plane design is a simple paper craft for kids that will then lead to another fun activity for kids: flying a paper aeroplane.

What you need:

  • 1 x A4 sheet of paper

Number of players:


Fold the paper along the width and then unfold it to create a crease.

On one side of the paper, fold each corner in towards the centre, to the point where the inside edges are even with the centreline crease.

Starting at the very tip of the point, fold the paper over on each side so the inside edges line up with the centre crease.

Turn the paper airplane over and fold it in half along the centreline.

Fold the first wing with the line of the fold running nearly parallel to the centreline of the plane.

Fold the second wing the same as you did the first.

The plane is now ready to fly!
