As part of our study of Japan we made two kinds of kites: carp kites that are used in thier celebration of Children's Day and a simple sled kite with a dragon picture drawn on the front. We also flew some store bought kites at the end to see how high we could get them to go. Have a look -

It's in the arms....
Or perhaps the smiling stare!

Our only injury. Who ever heard of a kite string burn? She was a trooper...no tears and didn't even want to come in and get the cold pack. She was right back out and flying again!
It was a great end to a hard week. Hope they get to fly their kites some more this weekend.
