Week 8 - Kite-making

Blog post by La'Shae



This blog is going to be about how to make a Manu Taratahi.  A Manu Taratahi is a kite. So let's get started.  

To make a Manu Taratahi you need sticks, flax, string and if you want you can use feathers for decoration.  

Start by putting three sticks on the ground like this.(In the photo)
Once you do that take one of your long sticks and put it 30 cm away from the bottom.  Now take your flax and wrap it around the long stick and one of the three sticks on the ground. It should look like a x when you have finished wrapping it around.  Do it again to one of the other two sticks on the ground just as you did to the first stick.  Do it again to the third stick and keep on repeating it but just make the stick smaller to look like a triangle.  

Now that you are done, your Manu Taratahi should look like this.
