Kono Rokkaku Kite Kit 10 Pack
Designed by kite artist Greg Kono, this simple-to-construct kite flies well in light to medium winds. This traditional Japanese rokkaku kite gives students good practice in cutting and good surface area to decorate! Prinetd on 11” x 17” bond paper, the kit contains sails, tails, bamboo spars, string on a winder. You supply scissors and tape.
Recommended Age: 4nd grade and older, good for integrating with primary level science units.
Decorations: The simplest method would be to use marker pens, but substituting the bond paper for more interesting light weight paper with color or patterns would work. 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.
Note: Sold only in 10 packs.
Ideal wind conditions for this kite: Light ( a flag on a pole is gently moving, not fluttering) to Medium (a flag on a pole is steadily moving, fluttering in the wind).
