Glueing the kite shapes to the tissue paper was so much fun we filled a whole large sheet of tissue paper!
Step 3: Apply designs to the front of your kite with mod podge or a mixture of white glue and water, and make small tassels from crepe paper. Thread a string through the horizontal straw on the back of each kite, and you’ve got yourself a super cute piece of summer wall art!

To stabilize the kite, run a wooden skewer down through both of the vertical cross bar straw pieces. I think this would be just adorable for a summer birthday party or any kind of festivity, though I have to say, I think we’ll be hanging this in the boy’s bedroom to remind us of our fun afternoon of crafting and our favorite storybook!

This is the first time we’ve made a craft project inspired by a favorite story, and the results were so much fun, I think we’ll try to do it more often!

The story is filled with so many things we’d love to do: fishing, kite flying and petting baby bunnies! Phew, this solves a little technical problem I hadn’t thought of, and round wooden bamboo bar-b-que skewers are exactly the right size for our largest kite! I was invited by Marie over at Make and Takes to participate in her Storybook Summer Series, and so we made this craft based on inspiration from a favorite story! You can make kites of any size, though for the largest size possible, use complete straws for your outside border and then fill in the inside framework with pieces cut to size as necessary. Glue your bows to a length of string, using hot glue, and then attach that resulting kite tail to the underside of the kite with hot glue.
