Materials: (Most can usually be purchased at a dollar store)
4" mini zip ties
Mylar wrapping paper.
Yogourt container lid
Step 2: Make basic cell
Step 3: Skin Cell
For the sake of clarity, the kite is constructed from 3 cell layers, each a different color.
Step 7: Braces
Step 8: Bridle
Use a paper punch to make a hole in the lid of a yogourt container and cut a circle around it to make a soft plastic washer. This washer will let you quickly adjust how the kite flies. Thread the bridle through the washer and attach with a simple loop. Tie your kite string to the washer.
To make the kite more stable, slide the washer up. To make the kite catch more wind, slide the washer down.
