How to make a paper airplane?

Make a paper airplane:

Start with a rectangular piece of paper. Letter-sized or A4 paper works well.

Fold the paper in half lengthwise, matching up the shorter edges, then unfold it.

Fold down the top corners towards the center fold, forming two triangles.

Fold the newly formed top edge down towards the bottom edge, aligning the edges.

Flip the paper over to the other side.

Fold the two top corners towards the center, creating a smaller triangle shape.

Fold the entire paper in half along the center crease, bringing the bottom edge up to meet the top.

Fold down the wings by taking the top layer of paper from each side and folding it diagonally towards the center crease.

Flip the airplane over, fold down the wings again, and shape them to your liking.

Hold your paper airplane at the midpoint of its body and throw it gently, allowing it to glide through the air.

Remember, practice makes perfect, so feel free to experiment and adjust the folds to see how they affect the flight of your paper airplane. Have fun!
