Tissue Kites

Your kids can make their own kites using tissue paper, and will have a blast flying them!

Cut two pieces of construction paper into the shape of a kite, and cut shapes of varying sizes into each one so they are symmetrical.

Glue or tape tissue paper over each cut out on one of the pieces of construction paper, and then glue or tape the other piece of construction paper on top, so the tissue paper shows through the holes on each piece of paper.

Attach a tail of yarn and a piece of string, and head outside to fly your kite!
