Flying kites are always fun. All generation of children have enjoyed feeling how the kite is taken by the wind and watching it as it flies high over our heads. However the experience is three times as thrilling if you have made your own kite. With this simple guide you will soon be flying your own homemade kite.

What you will need:
A normal black garbage plastic bag
A few wooden sticks, or if possible thin metal rods (about 90 cm)

Step 1:

Get a whole garbage bag and cut of its end so that is an open cylinder. Then, carefully cut on side so as to open the cylinder and create a flat sheet

Inspect the whole sheet for holes. Make sure there are no stretch marks or small holes.
This is a great Instructable, but you need to add a main image of the final project to the intro step. Please do that and leave me a message when you have so that we can publish your work. Thanks!
