Kite Template - Right click, copy, save, paste in a document. The kite should be about 4.5 inches in length. Scale if needed.Supplies:
Crepe or Tissue paper - I went with crepe paper for durability purposes (kids destroy things quick)
One Clothes pin
To assemble the kite you should have both kite pattern pieces cut out of the crepe paper and crepe paper shaped bows. You'll also want to cut two thin strips of card stock for the frame of the kite.
Thread three bows with needle onto thread. Tie a knot at the bottom of each bow to secure it. Tape thread to one end of the longest kite frame.
Glue frame to kite with the tail at the bottom.
Glue on smaller pattern piece to where the frame intersects. It's hard to tell but I also added tape on both sides of this pattern piece where the thread is tied. The purpose of this is to prevent the crepe paper from ripping. Using a needle, poke a hole in the top of the crepe paper and tie in a knot (refer to picture).
Wind thread around clothes pin which will be the handle. The thread only needs to be about six feet in length at the most.
