How to make a quick easy paper kite for kids


Today I am going to talk about how to make an easy paper kite for kids. (Disclaimer: This kite doesn’t fly..)

This kite craft is so easy that you can also involve your toddler and preschooler in making this paper kite.

The season of kite flying has started and my little one has observed a lot of kites being flown around our place. I can not buy the flying one for her since she is too small and can get hurt by the string. And she wasn’t really interested in flying one. She just wanted to own one.

So I decided to make a good homemade kite for her instead.. And the best part was that the procedure was so easy. She was all ready to get started and start making her own simple kite..

So here goes a simple tutorial on how to make a simple colourful kite from paper and Popsicle sticks
