We decided to give kites a try this year and this has been so successful we will be making them again in the future.
Each child was given a kit with step-by-step instructions to make the kite. Once it was complete they used felt pens to draw a little design on. They were excited to see if they would fly and went on to the field to try them out. The kites took off to the delight of the children and when they had their trip to the park they were definitely on the list of things to take.
