Beano Makes – The Hoop Glider

No need to wing it with this simple floating flier!

You will need:

– A sheet of card- Sticky tape- A plastic drinking straw- A pair of scissors – Some help from an adult!

Step 1

Fold the card lengthways so it’s a little bit narrower, and trim it down with scissors

Step 2

Fold the card into three equal strips…

…and carefully cut them out with scissors

Step 3

Make a small hoop from one of the strips and tape it shut

Step 4

Tape the other two strips of card together, then make a bigger hoop

Step 5

Trim the straw down with scissors…

…and tape the straw to the inside of both hoops

Done!

Now just throw it like a normal paper aeroplane!

Experiment with different sized paper hoops and see how far you can glide!
