Kites are as challenging to make as they are to fly. These kites are guaranteed to provide hours of creative time with your children, both inside and out.
Sketch a symmetrical kite shape (such as a diamond) on a large sheet of paper, newspaper, or heavy wrapping paper with Crayola® Markers or Colored Pencils.
With Crayola Scissors, cut out the kite. Be sure to cut a small triangular vent, too, so your kite can fly.
Use Crayola Crayons, Markers, or Colored Pencils to decorate your kite.
Reinforce the edges of your kite with wide adhesive tape, so it won't tear.
Securely tape two thin, round dowel sticks in place. One stick goes from top to bottom, the other from side to side on your kite. Reinforce the two points of the side flaps with more tape.
Decorate the dowel sticks with gift-wrap ribbons.
Use a paper punch to punch string holes in the kite's side corners, about a thumb width inside the taped areas. Attach hole reinforcers on both sides of the paper.
Tie an arm-length piece of string through each of the holes punched in the corners. Tie their open ends together.
Attach the tied ends of those strings to your long kite string.
