Make a 2 Ring Paper Airplane

What You Will Need

Plastic Drinking straw
8.5 x 11 inch paper or construction paper if you like color
scotch tape

Cut two strips of paper about 1/2 inch wide and 11 inches long. If you want to add some color to your plane you can use construction paper instead of plain paper.

Make each strip into a ring and then use scotch tape to hold them in place.

Take one of the rings and tape it the straw about two inches from one end. This is the front of the airplane. Tape the other ring to the straw about one inch from the end.

This is what your finished ring plane should look like. Hold it like in the diagram to launch it. You can also change the flight path by moving the rings around.
