This week, we have a very special guest post from my daughter – who is eight. She was asked by The Weekend Box to do some of the activities within their craft and activities box subscription service. We get a box every month, and she explains how to make/do some of the fun activities on here. Why not sign up for your free box as well? This activity was one of four within the box – as you can see – my son is getting stuck into one of the other ones!
Hi, I’m Chatterbox.
I am here to tell you about how to make a miniature kite. Here is what you need:
2 x Straws (provided by The Weekend Box Club)
Wooden peg (provided)
Kite template (provided)
- 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.
My daughter’s verdict (ahem – I added this bit! ;-))
The activity was quite hard, but it was good fun to do.
Here is the proof that she wrote this as well… – scanned in from her writing. She was a little worried about typing directly onto the KiddyCharts site. I think she thought that she might break something…
Why not nip along to The Weekend Box, and sign up so you can get a few activities on the go with the kids, without having to plan so far ahead, your head hurts!
