  • Paint or color crayons
  • Popsicle sticks
  • Paper                 
  • Scissors
  • Glue sticks or tape
  • Ribbon

Paint or color six popsicle sticks. Decorate them as you wish! 

Glue the popsicle sticks down on paper of your choice in a diamond pattern with a cross in the middle.

Cut excess paper off around your kite...but be resourceful, use excess paper to cut cute little bows to attach to your kite's string!

On the backside, fasten ribbon of your choice using tape, or glue. Add one long piece of ribbon for the string, and add a little loop on top, something for the kids to hold on to when they are running around "flying" their kite.

Fasten your cutout bows to the ribbon and go fly your kite!
