Children's Crafts - How to make Paper Bangers

All projects are FREE, however, donations towards the upkeep of Walkabout Crafts are much appreciated. Please click below to make a donation.

Have fun with your friends seeing who can make the loudest noise with these simple paper bangers. Just fold a piece of paper following the steps, then pull it quickly through the air and hear it bang. Any paper will do, however, brown parcel paper will last longer and give louder bangs. The bigger the banger, the louder the noise.

You will need:

Large piece of rectangular paper - ideally wrapping paper
Poster paints or felt pens to decorate

1. Fold the sheet of paper in half lengthways. Run your finger along the fold to make a sharp crease. Unfold the paper

2. Fold each of the four corners down to meet the first crease. Run your finger along each fold, but do not unfold the corners.

3. Fold the paper in half along the first crease. Make sure the turned down corners are on the inside of the fold.

4. Fold the paper in half so that the two pointed ends meet. Run your finger along the fold to form a sharp crease, then unfold it.

5. Turn up the two pointed ends as shown so that the edges meet along the centre crease you have just made.

6. Turn the paper over as show. Fold it in half so that you have a triangle on either side. Decorate the outside with brightly coloured poster paints or pens.

How to use the banger

Hold the two single ends, so that you have one neat fold in between the two outer triangles at the top of the banger, and a series of folds at the bottom.
Grip the ends firmly, then pull your arm down very quickly. As the banger is pulled through the air the paper inside the outer triangles will unfold with a loud bang. To start again simply push the paper back into place.
