Get Adventurous: Simple Kite

Wednesday 22nd May 2019

Make this simple kite and then go outside and see if you can get it to fly.

Equipment

  • A4 coloured paper

  • String

  • Stapler

  • Hole punch

Instructions

1.  If using white paper that you want the children to decorate, do this first before starting the instructions.

2.  Fold the sheet of paper in half.

3.  Mark two points, A and B on the folded edge of the paper. Point “A” should be 5cm from the end, and point “B”, 7cm.

4.  Fold the top corners of the page to point A and staple them in place. Do not crease the paper, just bend it back.

5.  Punch a hole at point B and attach the string.

Ideas to take this further…

Alternatively or in addition to this you could purchase some kite kits and make and try out a range of different kites (check out a great range of kite kits available to purchase from kitekids.co.uk). Does somebody in your group have a large kite that you could try out? Link this to thinking about the weather and specifically wind.
