  Summer is in full swing, and it’s a great opportunity to get outside and play! There’s no better way to get your summer fun on than some good old-fashioned kite flying, and it’s even better when you make the kite yourself. Let your little ones explore their creativity by helping them craft a homemade paper kite with our DIY kite tutorial-wooden crafts for kids wholesale . This will delight any child when they see their creation high in the sky! And the best part of all? It’s a completely screen-free activity.

  Read below to find out how you can create a paper kite in just 11 easy steps. We also provide fun colorful printables you can add to your paper kite. Try under the sea creatures for the kid who loves the beach, or a fun saying and color in shapes for a customized kite. Note: This project is great for the whole family, but we recommend that young children help decorate and children 8+ can help craft.

  Materials

  2- ¼ inch wooden dowels

  36” wide sheet of paper

  Masking or packing tape

  20 meters of twine

  Ruler

  Measuring tape

  Pencil

  Ribbon or fabric scraps

  Kite printables

  Glue stick/clear tape (for printables)

  Craft materials to decorate (markers, watercolor paint)

  DIY Kite Directions

  Step 1:

  Let your little ones show their creativity and have them color or draw on the large sheet of paper. Then, print and cut out printables listed below and glue or tape accordingly on the large sheet of paper.

  Step 2:

  Measure your wooden dowels to 24 inches and 33 inches using a yardstick. Then cut your wooden dowels to the correct lengths using a saw.

  Step 3:

  Using a handsaw, make divots in all ends of your wooden dowels.

  Step 4:

  Place your 33 inch dowel vertically and measure 11 inches from the top, making a mark with a pencil. Then, place the 20 inch dowel across the mark to create a “t” shape.

  Step 5:

  Use your twine to wrap the dowels where they meet. Reinforce the center where they meet with hot glue if desired.

  Step 6:

  Tie a single length of twine from one end of the dowel to the next, ensuring it goes right into the notches, creating a diamond shape. Wrap the twine a few times at each divot and secure with hot glue if desired.

  Step 7:

  Lay the kite frame out on the completed paper artwork and trim the paper around the frame, leaving a 2 inch border on all sides.

  Step 8:

  Fold the corners in and secure with tape. Then, fold the paper around the edges of your kite frame and secure with tape along the entire length of the fold.

  Step 9:

  Cut a piece of string 24 inches long. Create holes in the top and bottom points of the kite using a craft knife or scissors. Then tie one end of the string into the top hole and one end into the bottom hole. Use tape to keep it secure.

  Step 10:

  Create your flying string at least 5 times bigger than the height of your kite. Your kite should come out to 33 inches tall, making your flying string 160″. Tie your flying string to the brindle string to fly your kite.

  Step 11:

  Tape, hot glue or staple ribbon or fabric scraps to the end of your kite as a tail.
