You WIll Need

  • A4 paper. You can try to make larger or mini kites but we made ours from A4 sized paper. We are loving the color selection of this paper here but you could use patterned paper or decorate your own paper with paints or pens before you start.
  • Extra paper for the beak and tail.
  • Stapler. 
  • String.
  • Scissors.
  • Hole Punch. A Single hole, hole punch is ideal but I couldn’t find our one so used a traditional double punch. A little awkward but it still worked.
  • Glue Stick. 
  • A pen.

Take your A4 piece of paper. If you want to decorate in now is the best time to do that. Fold it in half. With it loosely folded bring the top corners down, one to each side to create the wing shape. Staple both together with the stapler.

Cut out a triangle shape from a new piece of paper and then glue in place. Draw on the eyes.

On another piece of paper draw out your tail. This can be any design. Get creative and use more than one piece of paper or keep it simple as we did. Glue the tail on to your bird kite.

Using the hole punch make a hole at the bottom of your kite and tie a string through.

If you want to add on extra detailing. Draw on wings, spots, llamas, the choice is yours!
