How to make an Origami Boomerang

A few weeks ago EC came home from school and asked if we could make boomerangs! Well it was pretty clear from the beginning that we weren’t going to be able to carve them from wood. Unfortunately my skills don’t extend that far. I told him I would look into it and get back to him. I did some research and found the perfect origami boomerang that does actually return to you (if thrown properly).

Make sure you follow my crafts for older children board on Pinterest for more ideas. Don’t forget to save the pin for later.

You will need:

  • A4
  • Pens

EC and YC really trying to be as accurate as possible.

To find out how to make it watch the video Red Ted Art made. They are who I used to make them. I did try to type up the instructions but it gets very complicated to write out once you get to about step 8.

Once you have made your origami boomerang then you can decorate it. EC really want to do a piece that was based on an aboriginal design so we had a quick look on google to get an idea of what to draw.

When it came to throwing them we found that if you aim it slightly upwards and gave it firm flick of the wrist (in the same way you would throw a frisbee) that the boomerang was more likely to come back to you.
