Kono Butterfly Kit


Designed by kite artist Greg Kono, this simple-to-construct kite flies well in light winds. The “critter” gives young students good practice in cutting around wide wings, which also help to stabilize the kite’s flight. Lots of room to decorate the sail, with geometric patterns from nature (choose from 28,000 species!) or from your own imagination.

Kit contains sails, tails, matchstick 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 8 and up, this butterfly kite is fun into adulthood!

Decoration: Use markers or substitute the bond paper for colored or patterned light weight paper. 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!)
