when i was younger i use to make these all the time. they are very fun to fly and very simple to make. i wanted to do them as simple as possible because i would love to fly them as high as possible. trying to achieve this meant that i would loose some kites no matter what. either i would loose some due to the wind stop blowing or due to the string breaking (when i was younger i could not afford to buy strong string). so i sort of found a way to do them as simple as possible.

Step 1: tep 1

so here are the steps. first find two stick from your back yard that are the same size or close as possible, also, as straight as possible. you can go to the hobby store to buy some stick too. here i'm going to make a mini kite using two skewer sticks.

once you have the sticks, get yourself a plastic bag big enough to cut out the kite.

the pic shows how i folded the plastic bag in half (actually it was already folded) and put the sticks like the pic shows and marked the ends of the sticks with a marker.

next connect the dots using a straight edge and cut the bag with some scissors like the picture shows.
