How We Were Able To Fly A Kite Easily

The wind has been really strong this last week, so whats best whilst the kids are off for half term, is we go and fly a kite!

Flying a kite

We did get it in the air sometimes and Grace and Jake really did give it their best, but after many failed attempt we gave up and went home. Why is it so hard to fly a kite!


So we came up with this very simple clever idea of how to fly a kite that works every time!

What you will need:-


Carrier Bag –  The cheaper less heavy duty ones work best.

Simple that is all you need. 

Just get your string and tie a lengthy piece onto each handle. The wind always lifts the bag, as you can see by my photo I took just after making this one, it is already on the patio and wind lifting it and wanting to make it fly.

This is a simple and costs pennies, and you more than likely already have these items in your house, you can even use wool as the string.

This, was the biggest hit, it flew they loved it and there was so many smiles on the kids faces when they were running and seeing their kite flying behind them.

It was really easy, and simple fun to get the kids involved in to creating something for themselves. Perhaps even using a plain carrier bag that they could colour in before flying would be amazing!

    I’ve been the dad who tries and tries again to get the kite flying only for the kids and mum to lose interest. This is an obvious solution but brilliant too. Love it 🙂

    This is a great idea. My husband wants to fly a kite with our granddaughter, but he’s so far not had much success. I’ll tell him to try your kite trick.
