Let’s Go Fly a Kite at Children 1st @ Chesterfield
Inspired by the Japanese Kite Festival, children at Chesterfield have been enjoying the thrill and fun of making and flying kites.
After fastening the kite material to a frame, the string was carefully attached before heading outside to launch the kite into the sky. Well, that was the plan! Running and throwing the kite into the air or launching it from on high, all means possible were used to send the kites soaring whilst holding onto the string tightly with clenched hands.
Great enthusiasm for making the kites fly was shown by the children and it was wonderful to see some of the kites take to the sky!
One of our Bobtail children, Jack, made a colourful kite at home with lovely long tails and he was delighted to fly it around the playground.
