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
  • String
  • 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.
