Make a Flying Squirrel Paper Airplane

What You Need

  • 8.5” x 11” piece of paper

What You Do

  • STEP 1:

    Print the flying-squirrel pattern on an 8.5” x 11” piece of paper.

  • STEP 2:

    Fold the paper in half vertically along the dashed line, so that the squirrel ends up inside the folded paper.

  • STEP 3:

    Unfold the paper and turn it over.

  • STEP 4:

    Take the top right corner and fold it over to the center crease.

  • STEP 5:

    Then take the top left corner and fold it over to the center crease.

  • STEP 6:

    Now that the top of the paper forms a triangle, take the top point and fold it down to meet the edge of the previously folded pieces.

  • STEP 7:

    Fold the right side of the paper in to the center crease.

  • STEP 8:

    Then fold the left side of the paper in to the center crease.

  • STEP 9:

    Fold the paper in half vertically again.

  • STEP 10:

    Fold the two sides out so that you can see the flying squirrel on the top of the plane.

  • Step 11:

    Attach a paper clip beneath the squirrel’s nose to hold the two sides of the plane together.

  • STEP 12:

    Make the squirrel fly!
