Good Morning everyone!
Who enjoyed our story ‘Somebody Swallowed Stanley’ from last week?
Do you remember what happened to Stanley at the end?
He was turned into a kite!
Rachel was inspired by the story and made her very own kite.
Why don’t you follow her instructions to make your own kite.
You will need:
1. Cut your plastic bag in half (around the outside) so you have the front part and the back part as 2 seperate pieces.
2. Cut one piece into a kite shape.
3. Turn you kite shape over and lay 2 sticks/ branches in a cross shape to make the frame.
4. Use the cellotape to hold the sticks in place.
5. Take the other piece of the plastic bag and cut across into strips.
6. To make the tail of your kite, take a piece of ribbon/ string (as long as you want it) and tie the strips of plastic bag onto the string, leaving a gap between each.
7. Attach the tail to the bottom of your kite using the cellotape.
8. Make a handle for you kite by winding a long piece of ribbon/ string around the 3rd stick.
9. Tie your handle to the kite where the 2 sticks on the main frame cross.
10. Your kite is ready! If you want to, you could decorate it and then enjoy flying it outside (just like Hannah).
What did you think about making your kite?
