Kono Korean Bird Kit


Adapted by kite artist and designer Greg Kono from a traditional Korean magpie design, this kite features fluttering wings, which help to stabilize flight. Very easy construction for young students, and good for integrating with primary-level science units.

Kit contains sails, bamboo spars, lines and winders. You supply scissors and tape. Assembled kits are shown with printed patterns for display purposes, kites will ship with white paper sails.

Recommended Age: Age 7 and up, this bird kite is fun to make, and is really satisfying in the sky.

Decoration: 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. Feathers could be attached sparingly to the sail or tail for added flair! 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.

Ideal wind conditions for this kite: Medium (a flag on a pole is steadily moving…but if the flag is flying straight out, it’s too much wind!)
