Homemade Kites - Instructables - How to make anything

It is best to place all of the required materials on your desk, table, or wherever you plan to work. Below is what you will need to make and fly your kite:
  • 8.5” x 11” sheet of printing paper or construction paper
  • Lightweight string
  • Pencil
  • Stapler
  • Ruler
  • Scissors
  • Hole punch (optional)
  • A nice breeze or light wind (6-15 mph)
  • 2

    Begin the construction process. Place your paper in front of you in a vertical position with the long sides on the right and left. Fold your paper in half so that the fold (seam) is at the bottom.

  • 3

    Establish the wing dimensions. Use your pencil to make a dot at the very bottom of the folded paper, about 2” from the left edge of the fold.

  • 4

    Secure the wings. Fold the top left end of the paper down until it is touching the first dot. Do not crease this fold. Do the exact same thing on the opposite side so that both sides are identical. Secure the ends of the folded pieces with a staple (the staple should be placed where you made the first dot).[2]
  • 5

    Create the attachment point. Place tape over the second dot and make sure the piece of tape is long enough to cover both sides. Use your hole punch to make a hole over the dot. This hole is the attachment point for the string.
    • If you do not have a hole punch, you can carefully use scissors to create the hole.
    • The purpose of the tape is to reinforce the hole so that it does not tear later.
  • If you are really feeling crafty, you can create a handle for your string with a wide stick or any tube shaped item. A handle makes it easy for you to reel in or extend your kite, and also prevents your kite from flying away.
    • The string is also called the flying line.

    Method 2 Making a Fast Delta Paper Kite

    1. 1

      Gather all required materials. It is best to place all of the required materials on your desk, table, or wherever you plan to work. Below is what you will need to make and fly your kite:
      • 8.5” x 11” sheet of printing paper, construction paper, or card stock
      • A thin wooden stick or bamboo skewer
      • Tape
      • Lightweight string
      • Lightweight ribbon
      • Pencil
      • Scissors
      • Hole punch (optional)
      • A nice breeze or light wind (6-15 mph)
    2. 2

      Begin the construction process.
    This section of the kite is also called the sail. Use tape to secure the stick into place. Be sure that your stick is not longer than the width of the kite. If it is, carefully use your scissors to shorten the stick.[4]

    Create the attachment point. Draw a dot about a third of the way down the spine of your kite and about half an inch from the edge. Place tape over this dot and make sure the piece of tape is long enough to cover both sides. Use your hole punch to make a hole over the dot. This hole is the attachment point for the string.
    • The hole will be located at the narrow end of the flap, which is towards the top of the kite.
    • If you do not have a hole punch, you can carefully use scissors to create the hole.
  • Insert your kite string through the hole that you created and tie the string with a gentle, but tightly secured knot. You can create a handle for your string with a wide stick or any tube shaped item. A handle makes it easy for you to reel in or extend your kite, and also prevents your kite from flying away.
    • The string is also called the flying line.

    Create a tail. Tape lightweight ribbon at the very bottom of your kite on the same side as the stick. Your tail can be as long as you desire. You can start out with a long tail and cut it shorter if your kite is unable to fly.[5]
    • The tail is important because it balances your kite while in flight and prevents it from flipping and nose-diving to the ground.
  • Now that you have completed the construction of your kite, it is now time to send it to flight. To start, find a location where there is lots of open space without trees, such as a park, lake, or beach. Although your paper kite may not reach significantly high heights, avoiding any hindrances is still a good practice.

    Launch your kite. To launch your kite, begin to walk with the flying line in one hand and the kite in the other hand. Increase your walking pace to allow your kite to fly using simple aerodynamics. When launching your kite, your back should be to the wind and your kite should face you.
    • Aerodynamics is the movement of a solid object through the air.[6]
    • The right wind direction will keep your kite in flight.
