A Different Kind Of Paper Airplane

All you need is,

Paper (cut into strips)

Plastic straws

and

Tape.

I found some extra-long straws at the dollar store, but regular size ones work too.

I cut the paper into 1″ strips lengthwise with my paper-cutter, for the rear loop.  The front loop is long strips cut in half, and the middle one is somewhere between the 2.

Then you just tape the loops.  Don’t block the straw hole, or tape it so tight that the straw collapses.

Conrad’s friend, Gavin, was over for the day and was happy to make planes too.

They only take a minute to make.  The boys quickly decided bigger’s better.

They went from being little planes to being ships.

Big or small, they glide through the air quite nicely.  These would be fun to launch off of something tall so they could have a longer drift time.
