    Here are the steps to make a simple paper airplane:

    Take an 8.5″ x 11″ sheet of paper and orient it so the short edges are on the left and right.

    Fold the paper exactly in half lengthwise to create a long skinny rectangle. Crease the fold sharply.

    Unfold the paper so it’s flat again.

    Fold the top two corners of the paper down to meet the center crease. The top edges should line up with the center crease.

    Fold the plane in half by taking the pointed tip and folding it down to meet the bottom edge. Crease this fold firmly.

    Finally, take the two wing tips and fold them up slightly to give the wings a curved shape.

    That’s it! You now have a basic paper airplane. You can experiment with different folds and designs to make more complex paper airplanes as well. The key is to make sharp creases and pay attention to symmetry. Have fun flying your new paper airplane!
