2000 years ago, the Chinese have built the first kites. In our series "Flying Objects", we would like to link to this tradition of paper planes. A folded plane is made of a single piece of paper and requires no glue or any other materials. Paper planes, however, can be cut out, painted and equipped with any extras you like.
 

Paper planes excite students every time anew. This again, provides you the possibility to introduce the element "air" as a subject in class, in a playful way. However, our paper planes are not made for instructional purposes only, but are also great for inbetween.

Color Zeppelin

You can let the color zeppelin fly from almost anywhere. When the zeppelin starts to spin around, the paper loop assumes the typical zeppelin shape. Due to its simple construction, it is also well-suitable for younger children. Caution: When letting it fly, it should be as windless as possible!

This is what you need:

Pelikan download template, scissors, Pelikan colored pencils.

This is how it works:

  1. Print out the template on a sheet of paper, cut it out and color the different zeppelins in different colors (pic 1).
  2. Then cut into the marked lines and fold the triangular ends along the dotted line (pic 2).
  3. Now make cuts into each of the ends and stick them together, so that the whole construction has the shape of an oval (pic 3).
  4. Drop the color zeppelin from an appropriate height (pic 4). After a short time, the oval piece of paper will spin, which will make it look like it has the shape of a zeppelin.

Have fun!
