  2. Load your cardstock to the StrongGrip Mat and Select “Make it”.
  3. Select “On Mat” 
  4. Depending on your cardstock type you have you will want to choose which fits best. Most likely you will want to select “Medium Cardstock”. 
  5. Select Load tools and material and continue with the prompts until project is complete. 
  6. You will have 4  sheets to draw/print.  Between loading be sure to check the mat for any debris. Clean as needed.
  7. These are the steps that will be repeated-           
    1. Insert the Knife blade for cutting 
    2. First 3 sheets should be cuts only 
    3. Forth sheet with prompt to load your pen of choice and drawing will begin 
    4. Once the drawing is complete you will be prompted to switch to the Knife Blade for cutting 
    5. Unload material (check for debris before loading the next cardstock) 
  8. Lay out your kite kit and let your child glue the 10’s on to each kite tile bow. 
  9. Tape the yarn to the kite and add each tail by counting by 10’s

When your kite is complete display so that your child can practice counting at any given time. With this fun craft you’ll not only work on mathematics number recognition and counting but also fine motor skills, writing (if chosen to trace) and attention and following directions. 

Ways to make your kite fun:

      Thank you! I love to keep my kids interested and Emily especially loves to learn through play. She takes this outside and “flies” it while counting. She’s super cute
