Fun Kids’ Craft: How to Make a Simple Paper Kite


>>How to make a kite. [music]>>You will need split stakes or split canes. You can use basket weaving reed as an alternative. Glue, tissue paper, cotton thread, a stapler,
and kite string. This tutorial will show you step-by-step how
to make your very own kite, using materials you have at home. Whether you’re at the beach or the park, flying
a kite is a great way to have fun in the summer. Step One. Soak the canes overnight to make them flexible. Join two canes together by wrapping thread
2 inches or 5 cm at the ends. step Two. Bend one of the canes toward the middle and
secure it in place with the thread. Make sure it is very tight. Finish the frame by attaching a cane to the
other side. Then attach two more that link them to the
top. Step 4 Apply glue only to the oval shape on the bottom
half of your frame. Lay the frame onto tissue paper with the glue
side down. Step 5 Once the glue has dried cut around the shape
of the frame, leaving a border of about 2 inches or 5 cm. Step 6 Cut the border into small strips and then
fold them over the cane and glue them in place. Step 7 Repeat this with another piece of tissue paper
for the top half. Where the two pieces meet, trim the paper
and glue to the cane. Step 8 Turn the kite over. Cut out a strip of tissue paper for the body
and glue it in place. Add other pieces of tissue paper to decorate. Step 9 Cut and fold 5 long strip of tissue paper
to make streamers. Line the ends up and staple together. step 10 Glue the streamers to the bottom of the kite. Cut two lengths of kite string 2 inches or
5 cm longer than your kite. Step 11 Tie one length around the bottom, and the
other to each side, making a small hole in the tissue paper. Step 12 Tie the bottom string to the horizontal one
and make a loop. Thread the rest of the kite string through
the loop. On a windy day, take your homemade kite outside
and enjoy flying it up in the sky!
