How to make your paper plane fly faster?

Here are some tips on flying your airplane efficiently:

Anyone can create a paper airplane, but not everyone can make it fly fast and far. 

  • To make the fastest paper airplane, fold the planes in the instruction precisely. For best results, use a flat, thin-edged object like a ruler or a card to flatten out all folds, edges, and corners, and create straight creases.
  • The weight on both sides of the plane should be equal. Make sure your airplane is symmetrical.  That way no wing is lighter or heavier than the other one.
  • Figure out which works best on how you would launch the plane. Some plane flies better if you launch it at curve path while some on a straight path. 

How to decorate the paper plane with your kids:

  • If you want to color the plane, use poster paint, acrylic paint, or watercolor to paint the papercraft. Make sure the paint is safe and non-toxic.
  • Or, you can use a colored piece of paper to make the plane.
  • Use some markers and crayons to decorate the small details of the plane.
  • Get crafty and eco-friendly by using buttons, glitters, and cut-outs to decorate your plane.
  • Bring your plane to life by drawing it a face or sticking some googly eyes.
