Introduction: Learn How to Make a Kite!

What?-           You can make your own kite! I got the idea after a day of boredom and watching MythBusters  It seemed like one of those "It'll never work" things.                                                                                                                                                                                     

How?-            This thing actually flies great, and is easy to make, you only need a couple 36" dowels, some duct tape, a garbage bag, some colorful cloth scraps ( or anything for a kite tail), string naturally, a saw, and some scissors. It may sound like a lot, but these items are easily found, and in half an hour you can have your kite up and flying! You can see how I made the kite in the video.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        

Where?-        
It was simple to make and I made it in little time at home in my garage and living room.                                                              

What Did I Learn?-           It's also great if you want to learn more about how kites work, I had fun making it and when I actually got a day with wind (there's not much in Arizona) this thing was amazingly great!
