This weeks post is going to be written a little different to those I have written before as I'm handing over to little Miss M to explain her fantastic experience in a Combine Harvester........
So ladies and gentlemen I now hand you over to my nearly 5 year old Little Miss M ......
" Mummy can I have pink writing this colour is boring......... That's perfect!,
I went on a little holiday down to Den and John's house with my mummy Daddy and Jasper, he is my baby brother and we had 3 sleep overs. Mummy says to say they live in a beautiful house in the countryside.

As a very frustrated little miss M comes storming into the living room holding on to her kite ( a plastic carrier bag and a string) and with a stamp of her foot, the kite thrown down to the floor, and the frustrating whine " my kite is rubbish!!" as little miss M erupted in to an all mighty strop I quickly googled how to make a kite thinking anything is better than a 4 year old on melt down. I stumbled upon this site ......
it was a life saver, although I had to make a few alterations due to lack of time, little miss M's patience and resources. The results were very pleasing and avoided melt down.
All you need to create our version of this kite...
- 2 bamboo sticks one of 18 inches and one of 22 inches.
- an old large carrier bag
- take your two bamboo sticks and make a cross shape make sure the shorter stick is the one to go across the top, secure them using sellotape.
- cut the large carrier bag sides so it opens in to a large sheet
- place your bamboo cross on top of the carrier bag and cut in to a diamond shape leaving 2 inches between the sticks and the edge of the kite.
- now fold the top, bottom and side points over the stick ends securing in place with sellotape.
- now fold the edges over twice to get the kite shape and secure with sellotape.
- take a 22inch piece of string and thread it through the top securing with a knot and do the same at the bottom.
- now fasten a long piece of string to the middle and we attached it to a pencil so little miss M did not get to tangled up whilst manoeuvring her kite in the garden.
- finally a 30 inch ish piece of ribbon to tie to the bottom of your kite.
- now your ready to ........go fly your kite.
