- Grocery bag (one per person)
- Strong string

- Paper ring reinforcements (the kind you use on paper in binders) or masking tape
- Crayons, markers, pencil crayons
- Paper streamers or crepe paper
- Found objects (bits of paper, glitter, buttons), nothing too heavy
- Punch a hole in each of the four corners of the bag.
- Add ring reinforcements to the holes or put a small piece of masking tape over the hole and poke through with a pencil.
- Cut two pieces of string about 30” each.
- Tie each end of the strings through a hole in the bag. The goal is to create two loops.
- For the kite handle, cut another piece of string around 30”.
- Loop this new piece of string through the two loops you created and tie in a knot.
- Glue streamers to the bottom of the bag to make tails.
- Decorate the rest of the kite as desired.
