Paper Aeroplane Challenge

Why not try something fun while you're at home? Challenge yourself to build some tricky paper aeroplanes and maybe even break a world record! How many paper aeroplanes can you land in a bucket or a hoop in three minutes?


Feel free to photograph or video your efforts!


  • Folding the edge of each wing up or down can help steady flight, as can making small fins.
  • Using a paperclip can add enough weight for a more controlled flight.
  • If a plane flies to one side, bend a small flap on the opposite wing.

Further Ideas:

  • Can you do a trick shot? Perhaps through a door or a hoop?
  • Can you catch a plane that you have thrown?
