Let's go fly a kite.
You will need:
- An A4 piece of paper
- A bamboo skewer
- A hole punch
- Tissue paper for tail
- Colouring pens or pencils for decorating.
How to make a Kite:
- First fold your A4 paper in half to create A6 size
- The second fold creates a wing and is back on yourself in a diagonal from about half way across the shortest edge, to about 2cm from the fold on the other side.
- To create the third fold, turn the paper over and create a fold that mirrors the previous one. You should now have a basic airplane shape.
- Secure the wings together with some Sellotape and cut your stick to length so you can attach it on both sides at the widest point of the wings.
- Turn your kite over. Now secure the undercarriage together at the widest point. Then attach a piece of Sellotape across the fold, about a third of the way down from the thinnest point. This is purely to re-enforce the paper on both sides, before you punch a hole through. The Sellotape will stop the paper ripping when you tie on your kite string through the hole.
- Attach your Kite tail with Sellotape. Decorate your Kite and then you are ready to go and fly your kite.
