Materials: (feel free to make substitutions)

  • paper
  • tape
  • scissors
  • straw

Step 1:
Start by cutting two long rectangles out of the paper.

Step 2:
Fold the paper strips over to make them stiffer.

Step 3: 
Cut one of the strips of paper so that it is shorter than the other.

Step 4:
Make a loop out of each strip of paper taping using tape to hold its shape.

Step 5:
Attach a hoop to the opposite ends of a single straw.

Step 6: Time to experiment. Give the flyer a light toss holding it from the straw with the smaller hoop at the front.

Step 7: Try modifying the design.
Ex. Add more straws, change the size of the hoops, and change the position of the hoops on the straw.
