MBK Paper Sled
These instructions take you step-by-step through making a small but high flying sled kite. All from several pieces of A4 or Letter size copier paper and some sticky tape!
This kite performs well in gentle-to-moderate wind speeds. That's from 12 to 28 kph or from 8 to 18 mph. Even quite a small child should be able to hang on to the winder once the kite is up.
Even though it's just copier paper, this kite flies at a very respectable angle. The flailing paper tails help keep the sled steady and you can hear the paper ribbons rustling from a surprisingly high height!
Cut out the two rectangles, which will be totally
covered in tape on one side. A little bit of curl is OK.
