Super easy kites and great party fun!

I made 18 of these easy kites for my twins 2nd birthday party, which we held in a park. The kids (& adults) had such a wonderful time. It was a great way to keep 2 - 5 year olds entertained and running around for almost an hour.

The kites flew beautiful which of course, is why the kids played for so long. Initially my husband said he thought the boys were too young for kites but not for these easy to fly kites.

The kids all added stickers so they could contribute to and identify their own kites. Everyone wanted to take their kites home for future flying fun.

Thanks for the wonderfully clear instructions. This was a huge amount of fun for little expense & the time commitment was well worth it. I recommend this for anyone with little kids.

18!

You might be qualified to run a kite workshop now :-) I once did 20 of these with the help of a room full of Cub Scouts... Unfortunately, on the day scheduled for flying down at the beach, the wind was blowing like a gale. But generally, these little kites are fairly tolerant of wind conditions. Sounds like you had a great day with them!

As mentioned earlier, there's another alternative to towing indoor kites if it's just not possible to fly outdoors...

"Kites Up!" is my downloadable board game. It's a PDF file which has all the documentation for the game plus images for all the components. Tokens, cards, the board itself and so on. Anyway, just click that link to see more info :-)

It's a printable PDF file. Make a diamonddelta or sled step-by-step. They fly hundreds of feet up for hours on end. Woohoo!
