Let’s go fly a kite!

Today’s weather wasn’t very pleasant or good for much…except flying a kite!

Late this afternoon when I finally coerced the children outside after hours of crafting and playdough we went and flew a kite out in the garden.

With two two year olds this wasn’t the easiest of tasks!  They first had to listen to instructions namely “Stand still!”, “Wait!” and “Don’t let go!” and they had to work with one another taking turns. Their faces and squeals of delight as the kite went up were priceless.

We waited for the wind to pick up so they had to practice patience waiting for the wind pressure to make the kite airborne.

Obviously at this age we didn’t go in to the ins and outs of force and gravity(!!) but this activity could easily be tailored to make it applicable to all ages but today was all about having fun.

Areas of Learning Covered: Physical Development, Understanding the world, Communication & Language, Personal, Social and Emotional Development and Mathematics
