Impressive little flyer
I was just looking on this page this morning to see how to tie knots for a couple of cheap kites I got from the pound shop a few days ago.
Then I noticed this article about making one from a plastic bag, so I had a go. I only had smaller skewers available so the kite ended up about 9.5 inches instead of 12. Very easy to do, and I wasn't expecting it to fly very well.
I took it out with my other kites and was very impressed at how easy it was to get flying, and how stable it was. I must have let out about 50 to 100 feet of cotton at one point. The wind was about 10-15 mph.
Next I'll get my 4 year old granddaughter to make one. She likes making things, and likes kites.
