Kono Octopus Kite Kit 10 Pack
Designed by kite artist Greg Kono, this simple-t0-construct kite flies well in light to medium winds. The “critter” gives students good practice in cutting and good surface area to decorate! Use the large universe of octopi for decoration (choose from 300 species) or decorate from the child’s own imagination. Prinetd on 11” x 17” bond paper, the kit contains sails, tails, bamboo spars, string on a winder. You supply scissors and tape.
Recommended Age: 2nd grade and older, good for integrating with primary level science units.
Decorations: The simplest method would be to use marker pens, but substituting the bond paper for more interesting light weight paper with color or patterns would work. Note: do not increase the weight of the paper, matching the weight of the bond paper supplied is critical in the flight of this kite.
Note: Sold only in 10 packs.
Ideal wind conditions for this kite: Light (a flag on a pole is gently moving, not fluttering) to Medium (a flag on a pole is steadily moving, fluttering in the wind).
