Let’s go fly a kite! Turn an old plastic bag into a DIY kite with this easy plastic bag craft project. Follow these steps and you’ll be able to turn materials from around your home into a day of outdoor entertainment.
For your homemade kite, choose sticks that are thin, lightweight and relatively straight. They should be similar in size to the plastic bag. As you’d imagine, smaller sticks will work better with a smaller bag, whereas longer sticks work best for a garbage bag. You can also use wooden dowels if you prefer.
Using the sticks and string, build the frame of your DIY kite first. One stick should be slightly shorter than the other, approximately 4 to 6 inches depending on the size of your kite. Measurements do not need to be exact.
Cross the smaller stick over the longer stick in the shape of a lower-case T. The horizontal stick will be about one-third of the way from the top of the vertical stick. Secure the sticks together using the string and glue. Place a dot of glue between the two sticks and then wrap the string around the intersection several times ensuring that the sticks meet at a right angle.
