Let’s Go Fly a Kite Mobile

created by: J. Davis

Materials

-light blue and white construction paper

-white computer paper

-hole punch

-stapler

-scissors

-yarn

-crayons

Directions

1. Cut 2 strips of construction paper about 1.5 inches wide along the length of the paper.  Staple the two strips together end to end to create a hoop.  Punch 4 evenly spaced holes around the top of the paper hoop to attach yarn for hanging.

2. Cut 4 pieces of yarn about 15 inches long.  Tie one in each hole on the blue construction paper hoop.  Once all 4 are tied gather the free end together and knot at the top.

3. Cut out 4 kite shapes from white construction paper.  Decorate as you like.  Punch a hole in the tope and bottom point on each kite.

4. Cut out about 5 small cloud shapes from the white computer paper.  Glue on outside of blue hoop (use a cloud on each side to cover the staples).

5. Punch 4 holes randomly around the bottom edge of the blue hoop.  Cut 4 more pieces of yarn at varying lengths and attach your 4 kites. 

6. Cut more yarn to add tails to your kites!

Notes:  This craft can be somewhat labor intensive for a small child so I suggest pre-cutting your yarn and shapes and allowing them to decorate the kites and attach all of the pieces together (you may need to help with the attaching step also).
