Circular Glider Paper Airplane
The circular glider paper airplane may look unusual, but, in the air, it's plain amazing. Circular wings work very well in propelling this glider through the air.
What You'll Need:
- 6 1/4 x 1 1/4-inch cherry-red card stock
- Drinking straw
- Decorative stickers
- Transparent tape
How to make the circular glider paper airplane:
Step 1: Measure and cut one 3/4 x 6 1/4-inch strip and one 1/2 x 5 1/2-inch strip of card stock. Bend the longer strip into a circle and overlap the ends by 1/2 inch. Tape both the outside and inside edges to create a "pocket."
Step 2: Repeat Step 1, using the shorter strip of card stock. Slip the other end of the straw through the second pocket.
Step 3: Pry open the pocket and slip one end of the drinking straw through the pocket.
Step 4: Position the two circles exactly across from each other on each end of the straw. Tape them securely in place.
Step 5: Decorate both circles with stickers.
