ROTARY KITE CHALLENGE
Rotary on Cuba wants to promote both craft
and outdoor activity by offering a Kite
Challenge. Flying kites should be a unique
past-time in Wellington’s winds.
The challenge is in 2 parts.
1. Get a kite! Build one or decorate one, or both. There’ll be a prize for successful “home builds” and for decoration, or both. It could be a class project, or a home & family one, or you could buy a kitset from our project supporter, Moore Wilson’s in Tory/College Streets
2. Make it fly! We’ll have judges to see how well your kite flies
Designs for building kites are available on
(These are suitable for younger children to build, usually from A4 paper)
This site also shows how to build larger kites as well as simple ones. The traditional diamond shaped ones are harder to make.
Be sure to tow your kite with thread or string… nylon fishing line will cut the lines of other kites….and maybe your fingers as well!
