Easy DIY Jellyfish Kite

Make these jellyfish run with the wind.

You’ll want clear skies and a nice breeze to launch these cute, homemade recycled kites high up in the air. It’s a great indoor project that culminates with running in the great outdoors! 

What You’ll Need

  • Recycled Plastic Bags
  • Cardboard
  • Skewers (x2)
  • Marker
  • Glue Stick
  • Cardstock Paper
  • Tape
  • String
  • Scissors

How to Make:

Step 1: Draw and cut out cardstock in the shape of a jellyfish body.

Step 2: Cut a plastic bag on all three sides and use the glue stick to glue the bag to both sides of the cardboard jellyfish (should completely cover the jellyfish). 

Step 3: Cut strips of plastic bag so that it looks like tentacles. Glue or tape to the backside of the jellyfish.

Step 4: Tape skewers in an X formation to the backside of the kite.

Step 5: Cut two pieces of string, one long and one short. Tie the shorter string onto the longer one and wrap the rest of the long string around a piece of cardboard. 

Step 6: Decorate any way you like (we like Jellyfish spots!)

Step 7: Fly away!
