We picked up a few kite flying books on our last trip to the library. Our favorite was Let's Fly A Kite by Stuart J. Murphy. It's a MathStart story, about symmetry, and includes do-together activities, at the back of the book.
The girls, however, were more interested in flying kites, themselves. Never mind, that it wasn't all that windy, or that we didn't have any kites. They decided they could make their own.
I went easy on myself, and printed out a template for Family Fun's "The Easiest Kite Ever".
It was pretty easy - no sticks, and only a single piece of paper - just print, cut, fold, add string, a tail, and you're done. The girls added some non-symetrical, crayon touches, too.
We used a streamer for the tail, and wrapped our extra string around a piece of cardboard. With no breeze, we opted to keep the strings short, for running...
It's great to be a homeschooler.
