Step 1: Materials

You will need:
-clear tape
-scissors
-string
-2 sticks
-as many leaves you want if they aren't big enough

Step 2: Taping the Sticks

when you've gathered your materials tape the two sticks to gether to make a cross.

Step 3: Taping the Leaves

I found these at my grandmas house and used these. I taped both sides.

Step 4: Taping the Leaves to the Sticks

All you have to do is tape the sticks securely to the leaves but be careful not to rip the leaves.

Step 5: Cuts and String

After taping the sticks to the leaves cut the leaves to look like a diamond shape. Then tie the string on and your ready to go fly a kite.

    Try putting the harness on the other sides (cut small holes). That makes the kite stronger and prettier.
