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.
