Chubbie Cubbie's Kite Activities

Activity name:
Paper Plate Kites

Materials needed:
Paper plate
18" piece of string
36" piece of string
Hole punch
Stapler
18" long piece of crepe paper
Crayons or markers

Preparation:
Punch two holes in the sides of the paper plate directly across from each other.

Carrying out the activity:
Have the children color their paper plates on the front and back.

Tie the 18" piece of string one end in each hole.  Be sure the string is on the inside of the plate (the part you would put food on).  Then, tie the 36" piece of string to the center of the 18" piece.  Finally, staple on a piece of crepe paper for the tail.

Please note it will need it to be quite windy for the kites to fly, but they will fly.


Activity name:
Kite Puzzle

Materials needed:
Piece of construction paper
Crayons or markers
Scissors

Preparation:
Use scissors to cut the piece of construction paper into a diamond shape.

Carrying out the activity:
Have the children color their cut out kites.  Then, cut the kites apart to create a puzzle.

For groups, cut out the kite on a large piece of construction paper (12" x 18") or on a piece of poster board.  Precut it into the puzzle pieces and give each child a piece to color.  When they're done, see if they can put the kite puzzle together as a group.
