the flying lines
1. Gently punch two
small holes on either side of the vertical stick about 10 cm (4 in.) from the
top and 20 cm (8 in.) from the bottom of the kite.
2. Cut a piece of string about 75 cm (30 in.) long.
3. Thread the string through the holes at the top and knot it securely
around the vertical stick.
4. Thread the other end through the bottom holes and tie that too.
5. Tie the rest of your ball of kite string about 1/3 of the way down
from the top of the flying line you just made.
Your kite is now ready
to fly. Try running along with the wind blowing against you. Let out the
string as the kite goes higher.
