The weather is warming up here and today we had a gorgeous warm breeze. My kids are ready to break out the kites. Check below for instructions to make a super easy kite with just one piece of paper from FamilyFun.
Kite template printed on an 8 1/2- by 11-inch sheet of office paper
Embroidery thread or kite cord
1. Cut out the kite from the template and make creases as shown. Reinforce the side points with tape as shown, then punch a hole in each point.
2. To make the kite harness, tie the ends of a 2-foot length of embroidery thread or kite cord to the holes.
3. For the kite string, tie one end of a length of thread or cord to the harness. Make the loop loose so that the string slides easily along the harness. Our string, for running with, was about 8 feet long. For a higher flying kite, you can use a longer string.
4. Staple the ribbon to the bottom of the kite for a tail.
