Enjoy making these decorative butterfly-wing kites with the whole family. Brighten your backyard for a colorful picnic, or let kites flutter from the ceiling!
This delicate butterfly-wing kite is perfect for colorful decorating! To make the butterfly wings, fold a large piece of construction paper in half. With Crayola® Erasable Colored Pencils, draw a capital B with the straight side of the letter on the fold. Or design your own imaginative symmetrical butterfly.
Using Crayola Scissors, cut around the butterfly wings. Cut a small triangle in the center of the fold. This opening will help the kite flutter like a butterfly when you hang it up.
Open the butterfly. Design its intricate wings and body with Crayola Crayons. Make deep colors by overlaying light coats of various crayon colors. Outline lighter colors in dark so each section stands out.
If necessary, reinforce edges and the fold with masking tape to strengthen your kite.
Cut several long pieces of ribbon. Add designs on the ribbons with crayons. Use Crayola School Glue to attach ribbons to the back of the kite so they dangle. Dry.
In sunny weather, hang your decorative kite on a porch or tree branch. Bring it indoors to flutter by a breezy window.
