My husband made one of these stunt airplanes for our son the other day and it is really fun! In case you haven’t seen it before, I thought I’d share it with you here. Some of the folds are quite tricky, so this isn’t one for young kids to make. I’ve tried to make the steps as easy as possible to follow!

Start by folding one corner down across a sheet of regular paper.Stunt Paper Airplane

Open it up, and repeat on the other side.Stunt Paper Airplane

Open it up again. Pull the top left corner down to the lowest crease mark, folding the paper into the middle.Stunt Paper Airplane

Repeat on the other side.Stunt Paper Airplane

Fold the left hand point up to the top.Stunt Paper Airplane

Repeat on the other side.Stunt Paper Airplane

Fold the flaps that you have just folded in half again, up to the top point (do this on both sides).Stunt Paper Airplane

Fold down the top two loose flaps over the fold below it.Stunt Paper Airplane

Tuck the left fold into the cavity available in the fold underneath it.Stunt Paper Airplane

Repeat on the other side.Stunt Paper Airplane

Open up the cavities on each side of the top point.Stunt Paper Airplane

Fold this top flap down and tuck the left flap below it into the cavity.Stunt Paper Airplane

Wing flap guide:

  • Both flaps up: Airplane climbs
  • Both flaps down: Airplane dive-bombs!
  • Both flaps flat: Airplane dives
  • One flap up, one flap down: Airplane turns depending on which flap is up.

Try experimenting with different combinations to try and get loops and other tricks!

You could use patterned paper to make these airplanes, or get the kids to decorate some paper before folding!
