You can make a fun and inexpensive kite using a cellophane shopping bag (the really thin ones work best). Decorate with stickers and tape 3-4 streamers at the bottom of the bag. Tie the handles together with a piece of yarn about 3-4 feet long, tie a loop at the other end for the child to hold. Have the children go outside and run with the kite holding onto the loop. They fly really well!
