It's hard not to notice that this website sells kite-making e-books. But what are they like? Find out by having a look at this free one.
This e-book provides step-by-step instructions for making three very simple but highly effective light-wind kite designs.
Once you have the very basic materials together, you can be ready to fly in minutes!
For flying line, the best results will be obtained with 20-pound Nylon or Dacron line from a kite-shop. Otherwise, cheap acrylic knitting yarn from your local shops or supermarkets will get your kite in the air.
Here's some comments from readers...
"My son is a cub scout and had a 'family camp' this weekend. Parents were asked to bring along activities that would contribute to one of the cubs' interest badges.
I chose the 'flying models' badge. One of the requirements is to build a kite, so I downloaded your Simplest Dowel Kites eBook.
The cubs, who are aged 7-10, did all the construction themselves and we could make about one kite every 10-15 minutes.
It was a great success - the kids loved it, and the kites flew perfectly.
I just thought I would let you know and say thanks for making this excellent resource available."
- Andrew R. (South Africa)
