trying to get the kite flying

Mister 3 with his kite – it did fly with a bit of help from running!

 Mister 3 and I left daddy and Mister 1 at home and went to investigate the kite making that was going on at a local open space.

They had a selection of ready made kite kits from Kite Kids, which were very easy to put together, with everything included in the kit (including the sticky bits!).

The people organising the kite making also supplied permanent pens, glitter glue pens, glue, glitter and paint. Unfortunately the gluey stuff and paints didn’t work so well because they took to long to dry, and if I was going to do this then I would use the permanent pens and stickers to decorate the kites.

Whatever the drying issues – the kids all had a great time decorating and making the kites, and an even better time trying to fly them. Just a shame that the wind wasn’t strong enough to get them up properly, but a lot of energy was used up running up and down trying to get the kites in the air.

This was a great way to combine the 30 Days of Crafting with some fun time for Mister 3 🙂
