    You will need:

    Kite & clouds templates (download here)

    – Origami paper

    – Pencil

    – Scissors

    – String

    – Glue

    – Craft masking tape

    – White paper

    – A4 Pale blue card

    Step 1

    Using the templates, draw and cut out 2 paper kites, measuring 6cm and 7cm in length. Lightly fold the kites from opposite corner to corner to create creases.

    Step 2

    Cut 2 lengths of string measuring 10cm and glue to the backs of the paper kites. Stick 3 strips of craft tape to each length of string and snip into bow tie shapes.

    Step 3

    Fold a sheet of A4 pale blue card in half. Using the template draw and cut out 3 white paper clouds measuring 6cm in length. Stick the clouds to the front of the folded card. Place the kites on top, and stick in place.
