Paper Parachute Origami

What You Need

  • Napkins
  • 4 even lengths of string
  • Felt pens
  • Small figures
  • Rocks/feathers (optional)

7 Steps to make a Paper Parachute

  1. Unfold your napkin to form a big square.
  2. Decorate it with felt pens.
  3. Tie a string to each corner of your parachute.
  4. Next, tie all four strings together at the bottom. Leave long ties at the end, so you can fasten the figure who will fly using your parachute.
  5. Tie the ‘passenger’ to the parachute strings, using the ends.
  6. Try your parachute out! Go outside and drop it from a height or throw it up high in the air. Does your parachute float slowly to the ground, or does it race down?
  7. Try replacing your toy with a rock or a feather. What happens when you launch your parachute now?
