I told a story over at Shelley’s ‘blog about serving as a youth counselor for my church on a weeklong trip to the beach. I made a kite out of an 8 1/2 by 11 sheet of paper that was a huge hit with the kids. I was just looking for a distraction for a few of them but I ended up with about a dozen of them making and flying their own kites. The instructions are very easy to follow and these little kites will really fly. I would have had a blast just flying mine all by myself. Just remember, the tail is very important.
