Super Simple Office 'floater', Great for Kids Too!





Introduction: Super Simple Office 'floater', Great for Kids Too!

This device when given an upward toss, as well as a rotational velocity will float to the ground. When used in an outdoor setting, the wind catches it and will give it some zany maneuvers.

Step 1: The Materials Needed: Paper or Styrofoam Plate, Styrofoam Coffee Cup, and Tape

yep thats all you need! Of course, you can add UFO like markings to the pieces if you like!

Step 2: Tape Cup to Plate

The plate can be placed either way, and will give different flying characteristics (especially when outside).

Step 3: Ready to Fly

Now while holding the cup with one hand, spin it and toss it up at the same time. Thats it! You can experiment with adding more plates and more cups.
