Building your own kite can be a fun project for you and your family, but there is no need to waste time testing a variety of models before finding one that works. Design a kite diagram to decide upon the actual kite you wish to build, saving time and money on supplies while testing your artistic side in a low-cost environment.
Press the "Start" button in the lower left hand corner of your computer screen and choose the "All Programs" menu.
Choose the "Accessories" folder and click on the program called "Paint." This is a graphic design program that will allow you to diagram your kite beforehand.
Choose the straight line symbol at the left hand side of the program (the button with a straight line drawn across it). Click on the white canvas with the mouse to start the line, move the mouse to the end point, and click again to finish the line.
Continue drawing in the details of your desired kite diagram until the basic model is complete.
Select the text button -- the "A" button -- and click on the diagram to label the different parts of your kite.
