Free Printable: K is for Kite Craft

Objectives: Letter recognition, creativity, fine motor skills

Age Group: Preschool/Tot School

Supplies:
Clear contact paper
Craft paper
Foam craft sticks
Glue
Scissors
Small pieces of tissue paper
Markers

Directions:
1.  Trace the kite shape on a piece of contact paper and cut it out.

2.  Have the child cut out rectangles, color the pieces, and glue them together to form the letter K.

3.  Place the colored side down on the sticky part of the contact paper. Then have child stick tissue paper onto the contact paper.

4.  Glue the tissue paper side of the kite to a piece of craft paper.

5.  Glue 4 foam craft sticks around the contact paper to frame the kite.  I meant for us to add some ribbon in a bow at the bottom of the kite, but I forgot until now…oh dear… 🙂

Exploring Wind with Mini Kites

Stay inside and examine the power of wind while playing with mini kites.

Objectives: Learn through play, Explore wind and movement
Supplies:
Small fan with covering that doesn’t allow little fingers to touch the spinning blades
String/Floss
Tape
Craft foam sheets
Scissors
Make sure kids know never to put their fingers inside the fan. As with any activity, please remember to supervise closely.  
Directions:
1.  Cut the craft foam into different shapes to make mini kites, and tape a piece of string to each one. I used duct tape to make sure the tape would stick well.
2.  Tape the end of the string to the fan and turn it on. Observe which kites fly the best. Observe what happens when the fan speed is changed from low to high. Let kiddos explore and play.

Both my kiddos LOVED this activity and where fascinated by our mini kites dancing in the wind. I hope your kids enjoy today’s activities as much as mine did.
