Kite Science

Draw a fish shape (or other that you choose) on a paper plate (large as possible). Allow the children to cut out the shape and then decorate it using crayons, tissue paper, sequins, etc. The children can also glue two or three 12″ long pieces of party streamers (various colors) to the tail of the fish (plate). Punch a hole at the nose (front) of the paper plate, and tie a piece of yarn through the hole. Tape and then wind the other end of the yarn to a craft stick. Take the kids outside and let them fly their kites on a windy day. The streamers are such fun waving in the wind when the kids take off running to loft their kites behind them, holding on tightly to the craft stick. These kites really fly!!!
