Get “carried away” with this kite craft! Not only is it easy to gather the few items necessary, you can have your students keep layering colorful pieces for more and more repetitions! Use this activity as a reinforcement activity for speech and language skills where students earn the pieces needed to decorate their kites.
Here’s what you’ll need:
- kite pattern, printed on cardstock (one for each student) – Free, linked below
- colorful tissue paper, cut into pieces
- glue or glue stick
- streamer, tissue paper, or yarn for kite tail
What to do:
- Give each student a kite pattern.
- Place the tissue paper pieces in the middle where the students can reach it.
- Have the students earn their colorful pieces and glue them on. If you are working with a group, they can do this as they are waiting for their next turn.
- Cut the kite out or have your students do it.
- Glue a tail on the kite and send it home or hang it in your room.
- (Optional – Write articulation target words on the back to practice at home.)
I hope you enjoy making this fun, spring craft!
