Here's what you'll need:
Step 1. Have the kids color whatever they want on their paper.
Step 2. Holding the paper "landscape" or sideways, tape the ends together to make it a tube shape. Make sure their artwork is facing out.
Step 3. Cut the tissue paper into 2x12 inch strips (or close to that size), and tape 5-6 strips to the bottom of the kite.
Step 4. Make two small cuts on each side near the top of the kite (not too close to the end or it will rip). Thread a one-yard piece of yarn through each hole and double-knot it. Make sure not to knot it too closely to the kite or it could tear the paper if it's too tight.
Step 5. Go fly a kite! Take the kids outside to show off their beautiful kites, and let them fly in the breeze!
