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.
