Paper Glider - What Do I Need?

How Do I Do It?

STEP1 - Start with your piece of paper in the landscape position and fold it so you can see two pyramids.

STEP2 - Next, fold the long edge of your paper over about 1cm in from the edge.

STEP3 - Repeat this again for a second fold.

STEP4 - One more fold for luck!

STEP5 - Work you hand around your glider so that the two ends can connect together. Add a piece of tape at the ends in order to secure your glider in place.

STEP6 - To launch your Ultimate Paper Glider just throw it gently in just the same way that you would throw a javelin!

Paper Glider - How Do I Do It?

What’s Going On?

Our Ultimate Paper Glider is a little bit different to a ‘normal’ paper aeroplane as it doesn’t have wings as such. 

But it does work in the same kind of way as a regular paper aeroplane.

Gravity pulls the glider down and the whole thing acts as a wing and lifts the glider up. 

Because our glider produces very little air resistance and is nice and light it can cover some real distance with very little effort!
