I had a store bought Kite I was going to Mod.
I could never get it to fly.
So I made this Sled Kite.
Just need some wind now.

Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: The Bits
I looked around for a good kite material, and settled on these cheep
plastic sheet, party table covers.
They are 4 ft x 4 ft.
The garden canes are 2ft.
The anchor points are duct tape.
Step 2: The Build
The Sheet is 4ft wide so measure in 1 ft from each side.
Attach the canes with a tab of duct tape, top and bottom.
Step 3: Join and Cut
I joined 2 canes together with heavy copper wire to give me the length i needed.
I folded the edges together and trimmed the sides, adding bridle anchor points.
Step 4: The Bridle
I used fine but strong nylon twine across the anchor points.
The Panda face was drawn on with a marker pen.
Now all I need is some wind for out door shots.
The next kite up will be a delta wing.
