Delta Kite

I was making a kite with my cousins. Because we were doing a game in which we would win if our kite was higher than the others.

I made the delta kite. It took me a very short time but my cousins kite were not done yet, their kites were quite complicated. And they told me that my kite would never fly in the air.

We started the race. It was a sunny day. My cousins were facing quite some difficulty in flying the kites. I had to run a bit and then my kite went very high, and my cousins were looking at my kite with a very surprised feeling. At last I won the race.

This site has such good instructions for building the delta kite. I used the instructions to help me build a delta kite in my STEM class.
