Step 1: After gathering your supplies, draw and cut a circle out of the middle of a paper plate (a grown-up may need to help with this step).
Step 2: Use hole punch to cut out 2 holes at top of your kite.
Step 3: Decorate your kite!
Step 4: Attach the string through the two holes at the top of your kite and tie.
Make sure to leave enough string to fly your kite outside.
Try to fly your kite on a windy day!
If you just can’t wait, try running to get the kite off the ground. Have a friend help you by throwing the kite into the air while you hold the string and run away from them.
Extend your activity by decorating both sides of the kite! Or have a contest and see who can get their kite to fly the highest!
