How to Fold a Paper Airplane

By:

Learn how to fold a paper airplane with this origami tutorial from Chris Pickup. She recommends having a paper airplane flying contest with the kids for a fun outdoor activity.
 

Paper Airplane
 

To make these airplanes, you use a rectangle shaped paper. (Typically you have to cut off a quarter of a square shaped Origami paper.) Fold in half. Fold the top corners into the center line.
