48" Rokkaku DIY Kite Kit Details

The Rokkaku is a traditional Japanese kite design. “Ro” is the Japanese word for the number six while “kaku” means sides or points. The broad sail is a favorite with artists (the large “canvas”) and with flyers (stable in a wide wind range). These kites are often flown at kite festivals in Japan and the West.

This kite kit is for more advanced beginning kite makers or those seeking a more challenging project.

Perfect for clubs, group projects, and team building programs. Appropriate for middle school age and up.

Its simple design and stable flight make it a must-have for most kite enthusiasts.

Easy to pack - simply remove the center spar and the kite can be rolled up for easy travel and storage.

The large surface of the Rokkaku is ideal for a wide variety of decoration styles. Made of Tyvek and can be decorated with a large variety of paints, permanent markers, acrylic paints, crayons and mixed media. Each kit includes all materials needed to make the kite.
