We’ll be gone with the wind during the month of May! Join us between 11:00AM – 3:00PM on weekends this month to create your own Paper Bag Kite. Decorate it, build it, then test it outside with gusto-o on a windy day!

Supply List

  • Paper bags
  • Streamers
  • Markers
  • Stickers
  • Scissors
  • String/Yarn
  • Popsicle Sticks
  • Tape

Learning Outcomes:

  • Develop fine motor skills through use of art tools and materials
  • Experiment with art elements
  • Make predictions and test outcomes with exploration


  1. Decorate a paper bag using markers and stickers.
  2. Tape or glue streamers to the inside of the top of the bag
  3. Tie a piece of yarn or string (about 1 meter long) around a popsicle stick.
  4. Feed the other end of the string through a small hole cut into the bottom panel of the paper bag.
  5. The popsicle stick will keep the string from coming through the other end. It should lay against the bottom panel inside the bag.
  6. The string coming through from the bottom is the string you hold onto – you can tie another popsicle stick around the other end to create a handle if you wish.
  7. Bring your kite outside and test it out!
