Coloring between the designated lines, outside the lines or within your own design is always a fun activity, no matter what your age. We want to create our own mark, reveal a bit of our personality or declare “Look what I did!” Kites…on a Roll® products encourage you to do all of this: inside, outside, all around the lines. And we have found several websites that help you create a kite coloring activity. Check out the list in Hints for an Easier Activity.

Hints for an Easier Activity
Crayola has replaced its Construction Paper Crayons with a NEW product called Poster Crayon. It is a bit thicker and longer, but has the same intense colors–great for the Sled and Malay kite kits. Eight (8) crayons come in a box. The company also carries non-washable markers, but the box has no descriptive tag. Look for their markers that do not say washable.
Since our patterns are printed on a translucent plastic, tracings can be placed under the sail. This is especially good if kiteflyers can’t think of what images they want to place on their kites. These sites have good kite coloring pages to print that can be decorated as an activity or placed under the patterns for tracing: www.nationalkitemonth.org/kids/games/color1.gif, www.crayola.com/free-coloring-pages/search.cfm?txt_search=kites, http://morecoloringpages.com/kite_651.html. There are 3 coloring pages from the National Kite Month site, and they relate to kite safety.
