Make an Easy Paper Bag Kite

What’s the best day to fly a kite? Winds-day!


  • Paper lunch bags
  • Streamers/ribbon/anything that can blow in the breeze
  • Hole punch
  • Sturdy string
  • Markers, stickers, etc. to decorate the kite
  • Tape


  1. Decorate the paper lunch bag as you would like, using the stickers, markers, etc.
  2. Open the bag and use the hole punch to make 2 holes on the open side of the bag.
  3. Loop the string through the 2 holes, and tie it tightly.
  4. Add streamers to the other end of the closed bag using tape or glue, or even hole punching them through.
  5. When flying the kite, hole the string and make sure the bag is open to catch the air.
