There was a bit of wind yesterday afternoon and we took the kites downstairs. These were made with the frugal family fun instructions and it took be about 2 minutes to make them.
Anjali kept running around trying to see where the wind was for the kite to catch it
Sophia just ran around with the kite behind her
It began to rain soon after, but the joy in Anjali's face when the kite got the wind and began to fly was quite wonderful to behold. Who would have thought that it could be delivered by a sheet of contruction paper, one chopstick masking tape and a plastic bag?
I kept the strings and the tails short especially for Sophia, but I think the girls will be fins with the kites either way.
