Paper Helicopter

Introduction: Paper Helicopter

About: I think it's fun to shoot guns & build things. Also, I love to play football, baseball, and basketball. I play the piano and I like to build electronics.


Who needs a paper air plane when you can have a paper helicopter?

Step 1: Supplies

Supplies
1. One 8.5" by 11" piece of paper
2. Ruler
3. Scissors

Step 2: Cut

First, you will need to cut a strip of paper 1.5" by 5" as in picture 1 and 2.

Step 3: Cuts and Folds

Now that you have cut the piece of paper to length, it's time for the next step. Cut on the solid lines and fold on the dotted. Fold A forwards, and B backwards. Fold both C and D inwards. Also, fold E upwards for wieght at the bottom. When you are done, it should look like picture 2.

Step 4: Wanna Go Farther

The blades on the helicopter should be big when your done, but if you want to make it spin faster cut the blades thinner like in picture 2.


Thanks for looking. Hope you had as much fun as I did.

    This activity did not take up enough time to be a deicated lesson but it was a nice filler activity and lesson on physics while the students were waiting for their wood to be cut for a different assignment.
