Japanese Carp Kites
We have been studying ancient Japan. We made these traditional Japanese carp kites which are similar to a windsock.
First we marked a double sided fish shape onto fabric with a marker pen. We reinforced the mouth with a strip of thick interfacing.
And then pained it with acrylics.
Once the sides were sewn up we could attach a string to the open mouth.
We'll find a place to hang them where they'll get lots of wind.
