Let's go fly a "kite"!

I got this cute idea from my MOMS Club for making homemade "kites" out of plastic shopping bags (Walmart bags), and I wanted to share it now that the weather is great! Make up a few of these on the next wonderful, windy spring day you head to the park!

You will need: 
  • 1 Plastic Shopping Bag 
  • String and/or Curling Ribbon
  • Crepe Paper Streamers
  • Scissors
  • Stapler
  • Cut a piece of string about 2ft long and tie one end to one of the handles on the bag, then tie the other end to the other handle. 
  • Cut a piece of curling ribbon or string about 4ft long and tie one end to the center of the 2ft long string already on the bag.
  • Cut four pieces of crepe paper streamer, each 2ft long. 
  • Staple the streamers to the bottom of the plastic bag
  • Hand the end of the 4ft long string/ribbon to your child, and let them run! Enjoy!
