What you'll need

  • Kite template printed on an 8 1/2- by 11-inch sheet of office paper

  • Single-hole punch
  • Embroidery thread or kite cord
  • Stapler

How to make it

  1. Easiest Kite Ever - step 1

    Cut out the kite from the template and make creases as shown. Reinforce the side points with tape as shown, then punch a hole in each point.

  2. To make the kite harness, tie the ends of a 2-foot length of embroidery thread or kite cord to the holes.

  3. For the kite string, tie one end of a length of thread or cord to the harness. Make the loop loose so that the string slides easily along the harness. Our string, for running with, was about 8 feet long. For a higher flying kite, you can use a longer string.

  4. Staple the ribbon to the bottom of the kite for a tail.
