Flying A Kite

The other day we had a homeschooling meet up where both boys got to make their own Kites. Learning about the best way to make a kite so that it can fly up high, with instructions given in an easy manner to understand by the Future World Teachers!

Along with the shape of the kite they had to work out the measurements, the angles, cutting and decorating….they both had to make sure that they had enough tail for the kite to stay up in the air. Luckily the day was really windy so it was perfect for it.

KYLE HAVING A BLAST

Once a month we meet with a group of homeschoolers at Future World – a science based learning centre for children. Where two amazing {very patient} retired school teachers run different activities each month. Last time all the homeschoolers got to learn about the Planets and how far they are from the Sun.

This time was making kites with having to measure the paper, fold a certain way, cut, add the tail, add the string and the support bamboo stick in the right location to make the kite stay up high in the air.

Next time they are going to be making a board game with all the information that they have gathered about “Antarctica” – cant wait to see what both boys come up with!

Flying A Kite is so much fun ~ and flying one that you hand make is even better fun!

Have You Tried Making A Kite?
