Go Fly A Kite


Hello, March! On the chance that it comes in like a lion, I thought we should have a kite ready.

After years of searching for a kite fit for storytime, I came across this one from the blog Better in Bulk!

I made a double sided PDF to simplify things for you and the parents. Fold on the line, punch the hole, staple the staple. (Remember you don’t fold the corners being stapled). I cut a bunch of yarn which, theoretically, won’t be too heavy for the kite. I haven’t actually gotten to test it myself, but even just running around shows that it works pretty well.

Have the kids draw/color on the kite before it becomes a kite. I offered to do the stapling/hole punching myself and had an extra set on a table for the parents to use too.

I don’t have too many books to suggest, but check out my flying and kite tags on Shelfari. When I have more I’ll probably update the tags and hopefully remember to update the links.

  1. Hey! Thanks for linking to my kite tutorial. Believe it or not, this is just something I learned to do offline, so there was nothing for me to link to. It has provided many kids with hours of fun during the windy spring time.

    • Thanks for posting it in the first place! I’ve already tried it out in a storytime and the kids loved it. I can’t tell you how great it is to have a simple kite design. Did you find it in a book or something? Or did you come up with it on your own? I can update the post with the new info. Thanks!
