Kite Flying

This month’s playdate is about kite flying.

It’s summer time once again!

One of our colleagues who was in charge of the report discussed the brief history of kite flying and the different types of kites

After that, we grouped ourselves into three then each group get to choose which design to make based on talkatee characters, Tok, Kat, and Tee.

Hey, you can also join us in kite-making! All you have to do is follow these simple and easy step by step process:

1. First, you have to prepare all the materials needed. Here are the materials we’ve used:

  • Sticks
  • Japanese Paper
  • Scissors
  • Glue/Tape
  • Nylon Cord/ Strings

 

 

2. Prepare the frame or spine of the kite by making a cross-like pattern. Place the smaller stick half-way higher than the center. Secure its position by reinforcing the intersection with string or tape.

3. Plot the japanese paper onto the frame then make an outline of the design. Cut out the paper according to your desired design.

4. Firmly fasten the Japanese Paper onto the frame with the use of scotch tape. After that, you can add some tail or “fins” that can add stability to the kite.

5. Make two holes near the cross section of the frame. Feed the string onto the hole and tie them making a keel. You can now draw some additional design on your kite.

 

 

It’s done! Now you can make your kite fly. Here’s our very own Kat from talk@tee Kite, look at how it soars high in the sky!
