Day 174 - Little Blue Kite.
Day 173 - Hello There! It's officially summer. Does it feel like summer where you are at today? It does here. This week I'm trying to create ways to celebrate summer. I'm thinking about pool time, popsicles and flying kites. Who doesn't love the thrill of flying a kite? After shopping around, I realized there were no kites to be found.
Whenever I am at Ikea, I always forget my reusable blue Ikea bag in the car. So unfortunately and fortunately, I have four or five of these bags just stuffed away in my garage. Today I found one in the trunk of my car and thought, "What am I going to do with another Ikea bag?" Well watch this video and see if you think this is a good way to recycle a crappy old bag.
Today's project is to create a little blue kite (or a brown, red, black, green, grey kite). The color doesn't matter but looking around your house for all the necessary supplies will be an important part of the creating process. Here is what you will need for your little blue kite:
- one blue Ikea blue bag or other plastic/paper bag
- one 1/8" dowel rod cut into 2 pieces measuring 17.5" & 12" (consider using kitchen skewers with the points trimmed off)
- clear shipping tape
- thin twine
Watch the video above and you will be set to go fly a kite up to the highest height and keep the creativity coming. Just remember to fly your kite safely and away from trees and anything deemed unsafe. Have fun flying and see you tomorrow windbreakers!
