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 sticks for spars, plastic ribbon
for tails, adhesive tape to hold everything together, laminated
cardboard handles and a cob of flying 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 a cob of flying
line for children to wind up their own line - good practice
for their flying session!
Kite kits are supplied with the materials in bundles.
The price is $4.95 each for quantities of 20 or more. For
quantities less than 20, the price is $9.00 each.
Line and handle sets can be purchased separately in packs
of 20 - SBLWS $30
Other materials are not sold separately.
