Thinking back to my childhood, summers mainly consisted of playing outside with my friends, swimming, eating ice cream & flying kites on the beach. One of the best feelings as a kid was after constant trial and error, looking back during a run & finally seeing your kite soaring through the air!! Here are some some simple steps on how to make your own "DIY" paper kite- reminisce on childhood memories in addition to creating some new ones!
- 1 pack of JAM Red Paper
- 1 pack of JAM Silver Paper
- 1 Silver Metallic Sharpie
- 1 pack of JAM Baby Blue Tissue Paper
- 1 Standard Single Hole Punch
- JAM Ivory Twine
- Coffee stirrer
Now Let's Get Started...
Take a sheet of red paper and a ruler, place the ruler diagonally from corner to corner on the paper. Make a mark at every inch with a pencil- this is where your lines and the basis of your pattern is going to be.
Fold your paper in half, horizontally.
Fold the top right corner in towards the other side of the paper (shown in the image on left). Fold that flap onto both sides of the paper and there is the shape of your kite (shown in the image on the right).
And there you have it! DIY Paper Kites that are simple and fun to make- and they really do fly, I promise!!
