Last week the wind was good, so we tried quite a few classical kite types. The one we made from the FamilyFun worked best. It’s very easy to make (you only need an A4 sheet of paper and a wooden skewer) and it’s easy to get off the ground.
You will need an A4 sheet of colored paper, a wooden stick (we used a wooden skewer), sticky tape, twine and some colored strips for the tail.
I remember that we used to make ours from newspapers and flour-and-water glue. 🙂
