- Printing paper
- Yarn (This worked well for me, but I wish I had used a lighter string.)
- Popsicle stick
- Hole punch
- Draw a pattern on both sides of the paper.
- Fold the paper in half. (Half the length.)
- Using your ruler, make a mark at 6.5 cm and a mark at 9 cm on the folded edge.
- Now bend both corners of your paper downwards and staple them together at the 6.5 cm mark. (Don’t fold them down, make sure the paper is curved.) Your kite should now look like this.
- Punch a hole at the 9 cm mark. Then cut a long piece of string and tie it to your kite.
- Tape the other end of your string to a popsicle stick. Wrap your excess string around the popsicle stick so it doesn’t tangle.
Now you can go out and fly your homemade kite! It takes a strong gust of wind to lift your kite, but if you run around (or ride your bike really fast) your kite will also float next to you.
