These kite kits include:
- all materials required for assembly
- all materials pre-cut to size
- line and handle sets for flying
- instructions for easy kite making.
The kite kits use simple construction methods and materials
that are familiar to children and easy to find around the
home, so that they will be encouraged to go on to making more
kites for themselves. The materials include lightweight high-density
plastic for the sails, plastic balloon sticks for spars, plastic
ribbon for tails, adhesive labels to hold everything together,
laminated cardboard handles and 34m of waxed nylon line.
To assemble the kite kits children need to be able to tie
The kite sails can be decorated by the children and they
will have their own individually crafted kite that will fly.
I use Vivids to decorate the kites. Soft crayons and some
soft pastels will also work. Poster paints, acrylics, stickers
and glitter glue can be good, too. Water-based markers will
wipe off. Test product on a supermarket bag (high density
plastic) to make sure it sticks.
The Kite Lady has designed laminated cardboard
winders with easy grip handles and line winding area for
little fingers to manage easily. They come with 34m of waxed
nylon for children to wind their own line - good practice
for their flying session!
Kite kits are supplied with the materials in bundles.

Line and handle sets can be purchased separately in packs

Other materials are not sold separately.
