Kite Plan #1
The Bumble Bee
A simple paper-fold kite.
You will need for each kite:
1 Sheet of copier paper;
You will need for each group:
Now let's begin...
Fold the sheet of paper in half...
Mark two points, A and B on the folded edge of the paper. Point "A" should be 2 1/2 inches from the end, and point "B", 2 1/2 inches.
Fold the top corners of the page to point A and staple them in place.
Do not crease the paper.
Just bend it back.
Punch a hole at point B and attach you flying thread.
Now Go and Fly It!!!
