      Kite Plan #1

       

      The Bumble Bee

      A simple paper-fold kite.


      You will need for each kite:

      1 Sheet of copier paper;
      sewing thread.

      You will need for each group:

      Stapler;;
      Hole punch.

      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.
    • That's all!! *

      Now Go and Fly It!!!
