They may not look like regular paper airplanes, but they are guaranteed to fly every time. Assemble several in different colors and let the flying competitions begin.
You'll need: paper straws, scissors/paper cutter, cardstock and clear tape.
Start by cutting 5" x 1" strips of card stock. Each airplane will need three strips.
Once the strips are cut, tape two of the strips together at the ends. You now have one 5-inch strip and one strip that is approximately 10 inches long.
Tape the ends of each strip together to create a circle. Repeat this step on the other strip.
Once both circles are made, use a piece of tape to secure the end of the straw inside the large circle.
Repeat the step with the small circle, securing it to the opposite end of the straw.
