Introduction: Minecraft Spider Kite
We looked in the cardboard recycling and found this box for milk cartons. When you unfold it, it looks like a spider. But not just any spider - a minecraft spider! We could just imagine its orange eyes staring at us...
One 12 litre milk carton; more cardboard; scissors; scotch tape; poster paint; paint brushes.
Step 1: Painting
Flatten the carton. Paint the body with black paint, with orange for the eyes.
Step 2: Morphological Correction
Hmmm, spiders have eight legs not six. No problem - scissors to the rescue.
Step 3: Silk
Spiders spend their days high above the earth on fine silk threads buffeted in the breeze. Just like kites really.
We made the cords from thin strips of cardboard, pushed through slots into broader cardboard "handles".
Step 4: The Finished Article
We hope you enjoyed it as much as we did.
