My husband and I did this with his K/1 class a couple of years ago on a
larger scale - newspapers rolled on dowel rods made the sticks - then the
kids had to build structures they could fit into -
did it for a parents/child night too -
Fun -

On a similar note - does anyone have the instructions for a 'Sierpinsk's
Triangle' kite?
