You Don't Need To Bring a Kite To Fly A Kite.

Just go to the park with a standard 8 1/2 X 11 piece of paper,
a roll of sewing thread. Well ! .... a toothpick ! (used or unused). : )


Here are the instructions:



Start making folds on both ends of equal size of about 2 1/2 inch width.
on a piece of standard size paper.
8 1/2 X 11 paper

It will look like this if you will make a
crease in about 2 1/2 inch from the top.

Now make another fold in opposite direction
on both ends as you see in this picture.

You will be ready to make two little holes
on the spot that I marked halfway between
the top corner edge and the crease line.
Can you see it?

"You can use your tooth pick now."

Or you can just look on the next picture
if you can't see my markings.

Cut a piece of sewing thread and tie both ends
on each hole to make a V string.

Make sure that each side of V is equal in length
and then, make a knot as shown in picture to secure it.
Tie your line at the end of that small loop of the V string
and you're ready to fly.

A better view of your Kite hanging from
the string. Sorry the wind is not available yet.
