Could this be the best paper airplane folder? He’s only 6! WOW.
How many ways are there to fold a paper airplane? If you really want to know the best way to fold paper airplane than look no further. Well, being the not-so-origami-inclined, I’m not one to even have a ballpark idea. But, my son, who just finished kindergarten, has been folding paper since he was 3. He started his paper folding with boats, and simple airplanes, but by the time he was 4, he was folding airplanes better than I could. I do use a simple design, but he has a dozen or so under his sleeves, and the one he shows you here is one of his favorites. This paper airplane glides perfectly, and if he can do it, don’t you think you can as well? To help you, he’s decided to make paper airplane tutorials.
This here is his first full-length paper airplane tutorial. He may be some-what shy, but he’s able to fold a paper airplane like a boss. No doubt about it, his dad’s engineering mind has come through here. Because no, I cannot fold a paper airplane anything like this. Don’t miss the end, because those last few touches are what makes an airplane glide!
And, yes, I bet he can fold a better paper airplane than you can.
Watch this 6 year old fold a paper airplane like a boss!
While I may be biased, I have to think that, since he can fold airplanes better than I can, he gives a good percent of kids his age a run for their paper-folding money. So, even if he isn’t the best paper airplane maker, he’s the sweetest paper airplane maker in my eyes!
Wow what a fun skill for a kid to have! I used to love making paper airplanes when I was little.

Thanks! He does love making paper airplanes
Those pics. Are cute of the kids
Oh gosh, this brings back memories. Not only of my own childhood, but of making these with my kids when they were little. Now they are a bit older and try to go all out making ridiculous ones to see if they will fly 😉
He’s very talented and would perhaps like Origami?
He does – he makes my husband makes random items like elephants, etc. I can do a basic paper boat… 🙂 I think he’d like to do more origami, but prefers practical items.
I used to love doing this when I was little! Such a fun thing to learn!
Pretty impressive! I’ll be the first to admit I can’t fold paper airplanes to save my life. My husband isn’t very good at it either!
Aww! How can you not be proud of that little one! He’s really good at making a paper airplane, so fascinating!
Thanks! He absolutely loves making paper airplanes!
He sure is a great airplane maker. Gosh, I haven’t made an airplane in a long time and now I am going to have to give it a try. Great tutorial!
Let me know how it goes! I am definitely amazed by his ability to look at a paper airplane and figure out how to make it, and then how to improve its design!
Wow, this is impressive!
Now I used to love folding paper air planes as a child but I was never that good! How awesome is he! x
Nice job folding that paper plane and thanks for showing me how.
Yep, he is definitely an engineer in the making! He’s so precise in every move! That’s really unusual in a ‘kindergarten graduate!’ Great job! (This kind of lets me know why my paper airplanes won’t fly more than a few inches, too, lol!)
This is amazing. I have never ever been able to fold a paper airplane in my life. Future engineer.
How fun! I used to love making paper planes when I was little, so I can definitely relate. 🙂
I remember doing this as a kid
I remember folding paper to make paper airplanes as a child, but this paper airplane takes the cake! Very talented!
Growing up, my brother and I used to make airplanes all the time. I was never really good at it but it was so much fun!
i love this i cant wait to teach my two boys how to make these
i love this i cant wait to teach my two boys how to make these when they are older
That’s so cute – I loved how focused on getting his folds perfect he was. I see a future engineer.
My son is really good with computers; taking them apart, putting them together, figuring out what’s wrong, etc. Just don’t ask him a software question – then he gets confused, poor boy.
I will have to show this to my grandsons. They love arts and crafts type stuff and anything that flies.
My son is good at finding hidden objects in a picture. he has very sharp eyes and can find them even faster than I do. His favorites are the ones from Hiighlights
That is amazing that your son has been folding paper since he was 3! That is wonderful.
Wow that is amazing and cool. Thank you for sharing it.
I have never seen a little boy his age fold paper like he did! He is a perfectionist! Creasing the corners and folding the paper – PLUS taking his time! Kids that age usually rush through everything! Good job!
What a little Pro.. He is so precise and really knows what he is doing! Who knows what he will grow up to be.. Awesome! I really enjoyed watching him make his Plane. Thankyou for sharing!!
My daughter is just an amazing artist. She started at a very young age with art and kept on developing her talent.
It is great when kids have a talent and recognize it.
He has amazing skills! I don’t think I could remember all of those steps like he does!
I know! He knows quite a few different airplane folds, and I barely have a basic one down!
Wow! That is amazing
He’s really great–I know that you’re very proud!
He does seem like the sweetest paper airplane maker!
I think your son does have a lot of creative talent!
He is very talented to do that by himself.
Amazing and very creative!
What a determined Young man! He loves precision and being perfect! That’s Great in a young child. He will grow up to be someone special someday! Maybe he will even work at Nassau! Great Job!! 🙂
This kids going places 🙂
I showed this to my kids. They loved it!
How Awesome! This little Boy has it Down To making a Perfect Paper Airplane.Who Knows What he will be making in the Future.
What a Determined little boy! He is going to do it the right way! Amazing!!:)
As an adult, I have tried o fold airplanes but they do not turn out as nice! They definitely do not work.
I really enjoy watching this little 6 year old boy folding his paper so precisely and turning out a perfectly folded Plane.. He pays a lot of attention on how he makes things! Awesome!!
I do not think I would have the talent like this to make a paper airplane glide!
Amazing. He’s very talented.
Thank you! He loves making paper airplanes!
He’s very talented.
My daughter is craft, so she probably would be good at this also!
What an awesome child! He really cares how his work turns out!! Great Attitude!! 🙂
I love it!
THis is so cool! he’s so talented!! my son will always asks me to fold for him.
I do think that his first full-length paper airplane tutorial is wonderful!
How cool is that! He is so talented!
He is def competition lol. He has a talent. My son did origami at that age and he really looked as it like a hobby. We got many books for him and he would share at school. Paper is amazing and i hope his passion is endless
He can definitely make a better paper airplane that I could at that age.
It is wonderful to see a child with such good concentration.
Amazing and very creative.
