Kites were invented by the Chinese, so we decided to try making our own kite as we study China. It was easier than I thought it would be. We used two paper bags, a glue stick, tape, crayons, and two wooden dowels that we had already. It looked great. We took it down to the park and tried it out and it actually worked, and flew for a little while. Then the smaller dowel snapped (the wind was a little strong) and our fun was abruptly halted. We are going to repair it with a stronger dowel and fly it again.
