Available in rainbow colours (see below), or in just white, this is called a train kite and consists of five diamond kites which fly one after the other.
This kite is a challenge and ideal for group activities where each person can make a kite then assemble it together into one big kite by the group.
It is also a good individual project for secondary school children to be made in a day or over a series of weeks.
It is a plastic kite which can be decorated with permanent marker pens, stickers, glue, glitter and acrylic paints (although permanent markers are best as they dry quickly). It does not require scissor use.
Kits come individually wrapped for easy hand out.
They are available in rainbow colours (ideal if construction is the sole aim of the project) or white (which is better for art-based projects as decorations will stand out better).
The rainbow diamond kites come in red, green, blue, orange and yellow with red tails for each.
We are unable to change the colour of the kits i.e. supply only red kites or any other combination of these colours such as blue and green.
One copy of easy to follow kite making and flying instructions will be provided in printed format per order. Digital instructions can be provided in pdf format by email upon request. This may be useful if you wish to print one copy per person.
You will also be provided with a link to my flickr page for close-up photographs of a made up kite for your reference.
The kite comes with full safety and flying instructions and meets EU toy safety standards.
Minimum order of 2 kites, unless it's part of a larger order of other kites.
Cost per kite: £5.50
You can now buy these kites on ebay in small quantities.
