This outdoor activity is a perfect cross over for today’s theme of “things that fly in our sky”, and tomorrow’s of “the weather”. We are going to make kites that can actually fly! I have 6 ideas for you to choose from – I am going to have a go at the bird kite and the plastic bag kite, which one will you choose?
Let's Make Kites
Paper Bag Kites
Japanese Fish Kite
“Koinobori” or Japanese fish kites are flown every year in Japan to celebrate ‘Kodomo No Hi” or National Children’s day which takes place on May 5. Click the post from Ria for Kid World Citizen for more info and a tutorial.
Easy Peasy Paper Kites
Recycled Plastic Bag Kite
Here’s another one from Krokotak – and it’s a great way to recycle plastic bags – we all have a bunch of them stashed away, right?
UPDATE – we made this today, and it was great fun; we are yet to see if it flies as its not windy enough, but I will let you know!
