KEYWORDS YOUR VIEWS

Learn to make kite with National Award Winner Asif Mian.
Remember the size, shape, frame, weight, joints, tail all determine the balance and stability of a kite and therefore have to be carefully thought about.

Materials Required 
Tissue paper 1 sheet, Long Bamboo Strips, thin cotton thread, gum, paper cutter/scissors, sharp bladed knife for cutting bamboo.

Points to Remember

  • The bow maintains a curve that keeps the paper stretched.
  • The tail is the only part of the kite that has double paper, with the bamboo pieces between the two sheets.

  • The edge of the tissue paper is strengthened using a very fine cotton thread – the paper is then folded over and glued to form and edge. This ensures that the kite does not tear. (Cotton thread is used as glue does not stick on nylon thread).
