Escape and fly away to another land with this paper aeroplane. You're only a few folds away from and adventure in the air.

  • Step 1Begin by folding your piece of paper in half length ways. Unfold the paper.
  • Step 2Flip the paper over and fold the top two corners in towards the fold in the paper.
  • Step 3Fold the paper in half length ways again. Your folded paper should now have a pointed tip. Open the paper back up.
  • Step 4Fold the pointed end of the paper in towards the fold at the centre again.
  • Step 5Repeat the step above with the other side of the paper.
  • Step 6Fold the paper in half at the centre fold again.
  • Step 7Create a wing by folding the square end of the paper down on itself.
  • Step 8Repeat the step above with the paper on the other side of the fold. You should now have two wings.
  • Step 9Flatten the fold in the centre and wings so it becomes crisp and flat.
  • Step 10Open up the wings so they stand up.
  • Step 11Fold the front tip of your aeroplane up to create a wind breaker.
  • Step 12Decorate your plane with coloured paper.
  • Don’t forget to put a paperclip on the tip of your plane to give it some weight!
