Returning to Cherry Tree Lane, it’s like revisiting an old friend. And I love how the famous Banks kite made a heroic return to the big screen in Mary Poppins Returns.

Just a few crafty supplies and you’re on your way to flying a kite as your family watches Mary Poppins Returns at home!
What You Will Need:
- This Kite Template
- Green Felt
- 1/4 Inch Thick Yellow Ribbon
- (2) Craft Sticks (or 2 toothpicks)
- Bakers Twine
- Print and cut out the kite template. Trace around your green felt and cut out your kite.

- Turn kite over. Cross your two craft sticks and use the baker’s twine to hold together. Cut off excess twine. Glue onto the back of your kite.
- It’s not a kite without a proper tail! And while I had no ‘Votes for Women’ sashes lying around, I did use the bakers twine and yellow ribbon to make an adorable kite tail. Cut and glue a long strip of ribbon onto the back of the kite. Cut and tie ribbon in small strips to complete your kite.
