What I will show you is a traditional Turkish kite called "Seytan Ucurtmasi", which means "Devil's Kite". It's so easy, that a 5 year old can make and fly it.

Step 1: Materials You'll Need

You'll need a few easy to find household items:

- Square paper of any kind and size. Something light is better. (Even though I'm gonna use origami paper here, newspaper works great)
- String
- Scrap plastic bag for the tail (if you can't find a plastic bag around, you can use another piece of paper)
- A piece of sticky tape to strenghten the briddle points (optional)
- Small piece of cardboard for the string winder (optional)
As kids we tried to make kites and they NEVER flew. All grown up our Turkish brother-in-law showed us this one and we have had so much fun with a kite that flies pretty much every time!
Glad to hear that! :)
Great pictures and explanation! :D And definitely the easiest kite build I've ever seen.
Thank you so much. It's my first instructable, good to hear it turned out a good one :)
Thanks for reminding me this! Cheap, fast, easy and wonderfully cute for a young child. My dad taught us how to make this for when we didn't want to waste even 5 minutes making a kite, only to be ready when wind is gone. <br>Best way to fly it is putting it on the ground to your back and pulling hard or just running a couple steps.
Thanks, glad you like it ^^
Thank you for sharing this, it flew so well and was so simple to make with your pictures and explanations, well done, your awesome!
<p>Teaching my kindergartens about kites, I can't thank you enough for sharing this excellent design, it's very hard to find easy-make kites that actually fly(this is the only one I know of that works), I'm going to have alot of fun tying them to the fans in our classroom!</p>
awesome work and great photos! congrats on posting your first instructable.
Thank you so much ^^
