Want to make some adorable kites for your next birthday party, or involve the kids in a fun summer craft? How about making some kites using drinking straws and tissue paper? It's so much fun, and we can't wait to make more! I was invited by Marie over at Make and Takes to participate in her Storybook Summer Series, and so we made this craft based on inspiration from a favorite story! Can you guess which one?
The project basically involves drinking straws, tissue paper and glue.
And we enjoyed every step of the way. I just love how the neon straws look on this dark tissue paper!
And ta da, a super fun summer kite garland is born to grace your walls, indoors or out! So head on over to Make and Takes for my complete tutorial on how to make drinking straw kites! Enjoy, and let me know how it goes!
