It's a windy weekend, just perfect for flying a kite that my son has long been asking for. I have nothing in my pocket to buy those colorful kites in the store, but I have a brilliant idea on how to make it which I learned from my childhood.
Note: This kite is only for kids. It doesn't fly very high like what adults and professionals make. But this can be improved by using thicker plastic and bigger sticks so it flies higher.
You can make a kite with just about any piece of thin plastic, some tape and thin dowels. The site below has nice instructions for building a simple kite.
Nice site for kite plans and instructions.
