This car is designed to be pushed off of a tabletop, glide gently to the ground, and continue rolling!
Step 1: Materials
Step 2: Prep the paper
Step 3: Form the frame
Use both hands to bend the corners while keeping the craft sticks flat.
Form a rectangle. The last connection can be tricky. Use your finger to bend the straw at the corner, then insert the last stick.
Step 4: Add wheels
Wrap two pieces of tape around the frame and the wheels. The corners of the frame may bulge and cause the wheels to be uneven. Prevent this by placing the wheels slightly in front of or behind the corners of the frame.
Step 5: Bend and attach the wings + tail
Place the upside down car on top of the paper. Use four pieces of tape to secure the paper to the frame.
Attach the tail by taping it to the top and bottom of the wings.
Step 6: Give it some weight
Bundle 5 half-sticks together. Wrap tape around the bundle and the front of the car.
Step 7: How to fly
Place your fingers on the center of the paper. Press down gently on the paper, then swiftly push the car off the edge of the table.
Bending the tail up or down will change the angle at which the car glides through the air.
