Lunch Bag Kites


Lunch Bag Kite

Alttag here

• Small brown or white lunch bags
• Crepe paper streamers or tissue paper ribbons
• Ball of yarn or kite string
• Scissors
• Hole punch
• Clear packing tape or paper reinforcements
• Glue sticks or white glue, thinned with water
• Markers, Do-a-Dots, crayons

Alttag here

1. Help your child cut off the bottom of the bag creating an open box shape out of     the bag.
2. Along the seam, put a dot about 1/3 of the way up.
3. From each of the corners of the side with the dot, cut to the dot, so you end up     cutting out part of the bag and you are left with two triangular "wings."
4. Punch a hole at the tip of each of the wings. Reinforce the hole with     reinforcements or tape over the tip with packing tape and re-punch the hole so     the kite string will not rip the paper.
5. Tie one length of yarn or kite string at each of the holes. Tie a second long piece     (or the ball) of string to the center of the first string. This is the one your child     will hold and run with.
6. Decorte the kite with markers, Do-a-Dots or crayons, and attach streamers     with glue stick or thinned glue. Let dry completely.
7. Some people like to tape the wings flat and cut a little air vent at the back.
8. On a not-too-windy day, run around outside with your kite and let it fly!
