Yoshizumi Mini Koi Kite Kit 10 Pack
In celebration of Children’s Day in Japan, the windsock in the shape and design of the koi fish can be found flying from many homes. Japanese kitemaker Nobuhiko Yoshizumi brings this fish to tethered flight in three sizes. This is the mini, 11” x 7” printed on paper bond and sparred with a twist tie! Printed on one sheet of paper, you supply your creativity, scissors and tape. Easy to assemble, great for walk up kitemaking activity. You can substitute our paper bond tail for lightweight tissue paper and make the kite more festive.
Recommended Age: All ages
Decorations: The simplest method would be to use marker pens, watercolor, ink or collage, (be mindful of the moisture of the glue and build up of the paper layers, let the sail completely dry before applying spars). Try 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 pack.
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).
