I am dreaming of spring weather, walks in the park, and the warmth of the sun. Maybe it’s because I’ve been stuck inside for days and days and days. Or, maybe it’s because summer is my most favorite season of all. Those warm, fun days inspired this colorful and fun kite craft for kids.
- 4 Jumbo Craft Sticks
- Pipe Cleaners
- Hot Glue
- Kite Material – napkins, gift wrap, plastic tablecloth, tissue paper, or your own artwork
Glue each end of the 4 craft sticks together in the shape of a kite – diamond shape as shown – to form the kite frame
Use the frame to measure the kite material, cut to size and glue face down to one side of the frame, turn over to view the front of the kite
Cut two pieces of streamer approximately 16 inches long, then cut both in half vertically to form four streamers
Glue the four streamers together at one end and attach to the bottom of the kite from the back side
For the finger loop, cut the pipe cleaner in half and glue one piece to the top of the kite from the back side as shown
Your kite is now complete!
