Step 1: Print pattern Download and print out the paper helicopter pattern from the internet. Tip Print the pattern on colored paper to make the helicopter more colorful. Step 2: Cut pattern Cut out the pattern. Cut only along the solid lines. Step 3: Fold flaps Hold the front of the pattern toward you. Fold the top flaps downward so they are straight out. This forms the blades of the helicopter. Fold one flap toward you and the other flap away from you. Step 4: Fold side flaps Fold the side flaps inward over each other. Step 5: Finish model Finish the paper helicopter model by folding up the bottom flap. Slide the paper clip onto the bottom. Tip Decorate the helicopter by drawing designs with the crayons.
