We are thankful that so far the only impact from Tropical Storm Hermine has been an increase in wind speed… Was surprised when we woke up to a lovely blue-sky day, even though the winds are starting to whirl. To get us outside before clouds or rain roll in, I decided it was the perfect day for a kite!
All you need for this fantastic craft is a plastic bag, scotch tape, plastic straws, and floss. I won’t walk you through it step-by-step, as I simply copied this easy-to-follow how-to video. The assembly of the kite is for adults, but your toddler will love watching, and the materials involved (straws, floss, tape) are sure to delight.
Kite in hand, Travis and I headed out to the courtyard, where the gusty breezes easily lifted the kite.
The wind was still gentle enough that Travis could take a turn holding the string!
Oh no, kite down!
Hard to take pictures while flying one-handed, but I managed a few good shots:
I never would have guessed a plastic bag could turn into something so whimsical.
