The weather is starting to get warmer and it is looking like there might be some good days for flying kites soon - they always make me think of Spring. We turned cardboard kites into a crown - just right for the season!

Start with:

  • Cardboard
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Stapler
  • Paint
  • Paintbrush
  • Cardstock

Step 1: Cut a band from cardboard.

Step 2: Secure into a ring using stapler to hold together.

Step 3: Cut kites from cardboard (we used five).

Step 4: Paint the kite shapes and allow to dry.

Step 5: Cut white cardstock details and glue to painted cardboard kite shapes.

Step 6: Glue kites to band to finish crown.

The shape of the kites lend themselves so well to a crown and we couldn't resist adding a bit of rainbow - another welcome sign of Spring - to the crown!
