Carrier Bag Kites – Perfect for Blustery Days

Kite Flying 1The last few days have been what AA Milne would describe as blustery days (in more ways than one), perfect for kite flying. And so we decided to make carrier bag kites, always a popular activity.

They are very simple, cheap and easy to make and provide ongoing entertainment!

You will need:

Carrier bag (thin supermarket carrier bags are best)



Sticky tape

Ribbons and/or streamers


Cut out a kite shape from your carrier bag.

Tie two sticks together with string in a cross shape, leaving string loose to fly the kite

Attach to kite shape with sticky tape

Tie ribbon and streamers to the bottom of the kite stick to create a tail.

Have fun flying it!
