Plastic Bag Kite


  • Plastic bag
  • Embroidery floss

All you have to do to make these kites is tie a length of the embroidery floss to the handles of the bag. Try not to make it too long, as these kites are better for catching low drag wind than they are at actually flying up in the air.

Ways to extend the activity: Ask children which direction the wind is blowing. Help them to see that the bag kite flies best when they run against the wind!
