Materials:

  • Construction paper

  • Hole punch

  • Stapler

  • Optional: markers, feathers and tape to decorate the bird

What to do:

  1. First get inspired by birds.

  2. What color is your favorite bird? Pick one piece of paper to match. Fold it in half.

  3. Fold one corner to near the center point. Do not crease! Your folds (wings) should be rounded. Repeat on the other side.

  4. Staple the wings in place. Make one hole punch behind the staple for the kite string.

  5. Use paper scraps, feathers and markers to make your kite look like your favorite bird.

  6. Add a kite string. You're ready to FLY!
