PLAY: Kites

A sunny, windy autumn day begs for a kite, and the makings for a kite are easy to come by. Armed with an 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of paper, tape, string, ribbon, a wooden stick and this tutorial, my kindergartener and I constructed a kite to his exacting specifications in 5 minutes flat.

It’s small enough for a child to manage and flies well even when the wind is slight. Cheap, customizable, satisfying, and fun!
