Make Your Own Kite! This party activity & favor can be used with many different party themes to suit your own event. Take a trip outside and let your guests feel the exhilaration of flying! If you do not have a kite of your own, you can make a simple one from sturdy, lightweight fabric, 2 wire coat hangers (or thin wood sticks), and a spool of strong twine. Cut the fabric in a diamond shape. Straighten both coat hangers and form a cross to support the fabric. Attach hangers at the points of the diamond, and cut off excess wire. Attach twine at the center of the cross. To give your kite a tail, attach a 2 to 3-foot piece of twine and decorate it with scraps of fabric.
