Childs Elementary School - Grade 4
Students made kites using the following directions.
||First you cut out a large shape like the one on the left and color a design on it. Repeat 3 more times until you have 4 total.|
||Take 6 straws (straight with no bend). Blow string thru straw. Tie straws into a triangular pyramid.|
||Take one colored page and place colored side down. Place straw pyramid on it and tape the bar that rests in the center. Fold over two sides of paper and tape. Flip pyramid and do other side.|
|Here's what one unit will look like. Continue the above steps until you have 4 units like the one on the left.|
|Tie corner of one unit to another. Then tie another unit behind them to the other two units. All the units will face the same way. Next, add the top unit and tie to the bottom three units. Trim string, leaving 1 inch string so they do not come untied.|
|This is the finished kite. The picture on the far left is the front and the picture on the near left is the back. Click here to see more finished kites.|
