Today we have been thinking again about weather and focusing on wind. We have therefore made the most simple kite but Little Boo loved making it then playing with it in the house!
All you need is
- Paper bag
- Lolly stick
- decorative items such as paper, stickers, sequins, felts and stamps.
- scissors (if you wish this to be an exercise for practising cutting)
- Ribbon or crepe paper
Here is how we made ours
Decorate the bag however you like
|Little Boo is LOVING cutting everything at the moment so this was a great activity to practise!|
Place a hole in the bottom of the bag in the centre. I did this by folding the bag and punching half a hole.
wrap some wool around a lolly pop stick and secure with tape on the stick, then thread through the hole. (the lolly pop stick just helps to reinforce and secure the wool)
We then placed some ribbon on the top of the bag just to make it look extra pretty! you can also use crepe paper.
All that is left is to fly your kite!
Hope that you enjoy making these we hoped to go outside and play with this afterwards but it started to rain really badly so played in the house instead. Hope we can go outside and play tomorrow.
