- First, all you need to do is cut out your kite template (provided by The Weekend Box Club). Now get yourself a plastic bag. Next, with your pen, draw round your kite template onto your plastic bag. Now you’;ve got your shape.
- Next, get out your straws and put them in a cross shape across your kite plastic bag. You’ll need some sticky tape. You will need to cut the edges of your straws until they fit.
- Now stick your thread to the kite where your straws cross. Now unwind some of the thread and wrap it around your peg?
- Finally, cut some strips of paper and stick to the bottom of your kite with sticky tape.
