  1. The link is missing “htt” at the beginning. Easy mistake.
    I’m looking forward to making this kite. It gives me a great excuse to get a big pack of bendy straws (my favorite things in the world)
    I wonder…. how would the kite perform if it was made of fused grocery bags?

  2. My dad used to make these with his 5th grade class every year. Instead of wire he used string and instead of material he used colored tissue paper. The tissue paper allowed the kids to personalize it a little by choosing different colors. They flew just fine and made a pretty decoration to hang from their bedroom ceiling when they were not flying them. :)
