Now available is all, and buy such a toy will not be difficult. But more interesting to make a kite with his own hands. For this you will need a sheet of paper or cloth, thin strips of wood and shingles, and thread to control the kite.

First of the chosen material, cut out a triangle or diamond of irregular shape, elongated downwards. The edges of the canvas, as well as the center cross pattern small nails to attach shingles. You can go the other way and first make a wooden frame, and then pull on the paper or fabric. It must be done as tight as you can to kite didn't resist the wind and was obedient.

To increase the density of the paper it is impregnated with water after drying, which increases the degree of tension of the canvas. If on paper drawing with watercolors, the additional impregnation is not required – watercolor abundantly soluble in water, and this moisture will be enough.

After making the main part of the snake, you need to tie it to the twine to keep the balance of the design. For the coil cut three strands and attach them so that they met in the center, exactly and without warps. At the convergence of the ends fasten with knot, and in this place attach one long string, or even reel to fly a kite as high as possible.

A kite can be of any size and color. You can make it swallow or cut in a heart shape, you can decorate his tail with bows or butterflies, can be performed on it application. It's a matter of taste. In any case, a kite made by your own hands, always more colorful and interesting than those that are sold in stores.

Run the snake should be there, where the air space is not intersected by wires, where do not interfere with the trees and the roofs of the houses. Ideal is a field.

In the process should participate at least two people – one running ahead, slowly unwinding the string, the other holding a snake and periodically throws him out. Thus the caught air flow. As soon as the serpent rises, the string need to unwind to great length to give snake the necessary freedom.
