K is for Kite Craft

This craft uses some paint and simple supplies to make a cute and simple kite. It’s always a lot of fun to for the kids to see how their hand print can turn into something else. For this craft, we make a colorful handprint for the kite, and then use a paintbrush and fingerprints to make the strings and bows. It’s a simple and hands-on way to learn about the letter K!

Materials:

  • Letter “K” is for Kite printable
  • pink (or any color you’d like for the kite)
  • another color paint for the “bows”
  • black paint
  • paint brush
  • wipes to clean hands

K is for Kite Craft

First, print the printable to go along with this K is for Kite Craft. We like to practice the letter on the first page before making our handprint, and we do the next page while the handprint is drying.

Now it’s time to make the handprint. Place the hand in the top right corner of the page to make the kite handprint. This will save room to make the string and bows.

Now it’s time to make the the string and bows. First, make a lowercase “t” shape across the handprint for the sticks and string. To make the rest of the string, make a wavy line from the bottom of the handprint, to the bottom of the page. Lastly, choose a color of paint to make fingerprint bows. Dip a finger in the paint and make dots along the black string line. Let dry and your kite is complete! Rinse hands with water or wipe clean.
