Kites!

Last week, we were playing outside on a windy day and realized that Claire had never flown a kite. Today, we picked up a pack of 2 at Dollar Tree and tried them out.
They flew amazingly well! Claire was in awe the first time it lifted up into the sky.
She liked trying to catch it as we were pulling it in.


At first she didn't quite understand that she couldn't run toward the kite as it was flying and that she needed to keep tension on the string.

But by the end of the afternoon she was a pro kite flyer.

  1. I've never flown a kite by myself. I will have to try it with my grandkids sometime! I've been deprived!!!
