We recently pulled up a YouTube clip of Mary Poppin's "Let's Go Fly a Kite" to watch with our toddler before heading out to fly our own little handmade kite. Though we ended up doing most of the running with this particular kite, we're pretty sure we'll try it again. We gathered up a few ideas for making your own kites (and one mini parachute):
• Make a Simple 10-Minute Kite by Maya Made
• DIY Homemade Kites by Giddy Giddy
• Simple Paper Kite by Better in Bulk on Skip To My Lou
• Make a Mini Parachute with a Grocery Bag by Flip Flops & Applesauce
If you have a toddler who gets frustrated with his or her ability to get the kite up, try a helium balloon that they can run around with!
