Paper Plate Kite

My friend/neighbor, Debra, has several grandchildren, all of which love to run and play. It was a tough winter here in southeast Wisconsin, so when temperatures finally started to rise the kids couldn’t wait to get outside! Flying a kite is fun, but for younger kids with short attention spans, it can be a frustrating task. So making a kite that’s little kid friendly is a must for these breezy late-spring days.

As you can see it flies in the wind but there’s no chance of it being tangled in the trees.

And when they’ve had enough, which happens often with young children, they can set it down and go do something else.

It will always fly, even when there isn’t a breeze. All they have to do is run with it to make it fly!
