How to Make
- Cut a large wing shape from a sheet of polystyrene (see template). Use permanent markers to colour and decorate it on both sides.
- Ask an adult to cut a polystyrene egg in half and cut a slot in the top of the egg with a kitchen knife. Glue a small triangle of polystyrene sheet into the slit and leave to dry.
- Use permanent pens to colour another oval and a larger triangle of polystyrene sheet. Glue the oval to the top of the wing shape and fix the triangle behind it.
- Colour in the slotted oval and triangle and glue to the underside of the wing shape. When the glue is completely dry, your space glider is ready to fly – out of this world!
Putting triangular rudders on both sides of the glider will give it stability and a smooth flight. Because of this you can fly your glider either way up.
