Our Plastic Bag Kite

We made your 'kite for kids' today out of a plastic bag.

Attached is a photo of my 6 year old flying it. He has never flown a kite before.

Great success.

Thanks for posting the instructions :-)

Regards,

That's a fine high-visibility version of the Tiny Tots Diamond design he's flying there! On light enough line (less than 20 pound breaking strain), this little kite will happily fly at around 100 feet off the ground too.

    This page was done back in 2008 - so it's something of a snapshot of the type of inflatables around back then. Some interesting designs here...
