We Heart KC: Father's Day Gift Guide

kathy

It's almost Father's Day! We're not sure how it's already time for summer holidays, but we have you covered with some of our favorite local Kansas City gifts (also available for you non-KC peeps via e-commerce, of course). These are our go-to's from our favorite Kansas City brands, including a brand-new addition: the Peanut's famous wings are now available for delivery across the country, fully cooked, ready to pop in the oven, preserved for mailing with dry-ice & complete with sauces. If you're looking for an activity to do with dad here in KC, head to Boulevardia by Kansas City favorite, Boulevard Beer, which is happening in KC’s 12th Street Bridge Historic District in the West Bottoms from June 13–15.

getting crafty for father's day : DIY kites

Ampersand Design Studio

With Father's Day right around the corner, we thought it was the perfect time for a little craft that you could do with your kid! Bonus: it can be a gift for dads AND a fun little activity for Father's Day! So, grab a few supplies, and let's have some fun!

Materials: skewers, tape, string, tissue paper, glue stick, scissors, needle and ribbon for decoration

Step 1.  Layout your skewers in the size that you want for your kite

2.  Tie off the center stabilizers and tape the supporting skewers

3.  Cut out a piece of tissue paper the size of your kite with a 1-2 inch boarder

4.  Cut thick fringe on the edges and glue the tabs around the skewers. Continue this around all four edges.

5.  Place the glue side down on another piece of tissue and repeat steps 3 and 4. Adding more layers helps to strengthen your kite! The more you add the stronger it gets!

6.  Once you have finished your layering  (we liked 4 layers the best) you can use your needle and thread to poke through and around your stabilizer at the top (its best if you can thread it through the tape so it does not tear).  Tie this off and then do the same at the bottom. Keep some slack between the two ties, this is what you can hold onto to fly your kite.

7. Add a tail! This can be anything you want! We used ribbon, yarn and bows!

8.  Decorate! Paint and stickers work great!

9. Take it outside and give it a shot!

We hope you guys all give it a shot, we had the best time letting our little guys decorate these kites!

We know we have already introduced you on previous posts, but this brilliant idea is all thanks to our absolutely incredible intern, Jordan Key! Not only is she an awesome designer, but we have uncovered a craft genius! She's basically our very own in-house Martha Stewart and we are so lucky to have her! Thanks Jordan for coming up with this fun activity and for your daily brilliance!!!
