Kids Make: DIY Kites

Kids Make: DIY Kites

Supplies:

  • Paper
  • Scissors
  • Glue stick
  • Hole punch
  • String
  • Stapler
  • Markers
  • Streamers (optional)

Directions:

  1. Fold a piece of paper in half hamburger style.
  2. Use a marker to mark one quarter of the way in on the creased edge.
  3. Take the top left corner of the top half of the paper and bend it to meet the mark you just made.
  4. Do the same with the opposite corner to create the "wings" of your kite. Take care not to fold the paper flat, you want the paper to form a funnel for the air to move through when you are pulling your kite.
  5. Staple the corners in place. You now have the body of your kite.
  6. Use a hole punch to create a hole behind the staple.
  7. Decorate! Use cut paper and markers to turn your kite into an animal, add streamers or long strips of paper to the back.
  8. Tie a string into the hole punch.
  9. You're ready to fly!
