Paper kites against a watercolor sky: craft for kids

Start using a white sheet of paper. Using a large paint brush and water color paints, paint the sky. I used blue, purple, yellow and pink with a lot of water in the brush. I think it is a bit light. Using a little less water or blotting the brush on a rag will make the colors more vivid.

While the watercolor sky dries, use an empty cereal box to make a kite form to trace. That way all the kites will be the same size.

Cut out the kite form and trace it onto different color paper,

Cut the colored kites into four sections.

Mix the colors and glue the sections onto the sky in kite form.

Add yarn with a few knots for the kite string.
