Make Your Own Kite

Materials to Make a Simple Paper Kite:

  • Printer paper
  • Scissors
  • Yarn (This worked ok with me, but I wish I used a lighter string.)
  • Tape
  • Popsicle Stick
  • Markers
  • Hole Puncher
  • Stapler
  • Ruler


Directions to Make a Simple Paper Kite: 


  1. Draw a design on both sides of your paper.  (Chuck and I did this collaboratively.)

    2.  Fold your paper in half. (Half the length.)

    3.  Using your ruler, make a mark at 2 1/2 ” and a mark at  3 1/2″ on the folded edge.

    4.  Now curve both corners of your paper down and staple them at the 2 1/2″ mark. (Don’t fold them down, make sure the paper is curved.) Your kite should now look like this.

  1. Punch at hole at the 3 1/2″ mark.  Then, cut a long piece of string and tie it to your kite.

    6.  Tape the other end of your string down to a popsicle stick.  Wind your excess string around the Popsicle stick so it doesn’t get tangled.

Now  go fly your own kite!    It takes a strong gust of wind to lift your kite, but if you run around (or ride your bicycle really fast), your kite will float along beside you too.
