When it gets to that time of year when the wind gets up, its time to build a kite.
This is a design for a simple diamond kite that everyone should be able to build.
Things you’ll need:
- Thin Dowling (90cm or bigger)
- Thick Plastic Bag
- Kite Line (Cheap ones can be bought on eBay)
- Coloured Plastic for decoration
A nice touch it to have each of the Cubs (with help) or Scout Cut the dowling to length. If you want to make this even easier, then you could make a paper guide for them to trace around. With the off cuts why not make a tail, it will help stabilise the flight of the kite.
