Today, I am going to teach you a simple skill that everyone should really know: How to make a good paper airplane. One day, each of you will grow up, and probably have at least one male child, and this skill can provide them with hours of fun that is incredibly cheap! Or maybe you’ll be an elementary school teacher trying to find something fun and easy to do with your students for a short period of time. What better way of entertaining a group of kids than by teaching them to make their own toys? So to make a good paper airplane, all you have to do is follow six easy steps: 1. Fold the paper along the width then unfold it to create a crease along its center. 2. On one side of the paper, fold each corner in towards the center to the point where the inside edges are even with the centerline crease. (make sure you fold it well; make really hard creases) 3. Starting at the very tip of the point, fold the paper over on each side so the inside edges line up with the center crease. (It’s important not to mess up the tip of your plane here. It’s easy to do and can mess up the flight of your paper plane) 4. Turn the paper airplane over and fold it in half along the centerline. 5. Fold the first wing with the line of the fold running nearly parallel to the centerline of the plane. Make this fold from 1/2 to 1 inch from the center. 6. Fold the second wing in the exact same way.
So whether you’re a teacher, or a parent, or maybe a babysitter, being able to make paper airplanes is a fun and easy skill to teach kids so that they can occupy themselves. I hope you enjoyed my presentation!
