We made kites this week. We've been enjoying the Gerda Muller book, Autumn, and one of the things the girls most wanted to leap right off and do was fly a kite. We had one once, a long time ago, and when I tried to get it out it seemed to have got a bit mouldy, and had a snail on it, and I sighed a little sigh, relocated the snail, and tried to scrub the kite clean - to no avail, so in the bin it went. Thankfully this timely find provided us with a simple-enough alternative!
The thing with kites is, I've never managed to make one that will fly. Never. And a lot of directions are just too much for me to attempt with three little ones. If it was just me and Jenna, perhaps... But to the park we go!
"We're WILD!" calls Jenna to the others.
