Judy- it is such a pleasure to do business with you as you are so helpful and organized and responsive! A personal touch is missing when ordering so often these days.

Build the kites. Older Gen folks who don’t have younger kids in our church gathering to assist other families helps build a sense of community, plus, this is just fun! Anyhow, the event went VERY well. I wasn’t able to attend, as I came down with pneumonia. Imagine…the one in charge with all the info and ideas was not able to be there. But I have an AMAZING team of youth and children’s ministry workers who were able to decipher my idea and got it all done. The families all had a wonderful time and have already been asking when we can do it again.
Thanks! This was FUN!

Good Morning Judy!
This is how second hand news travels and keeps great suppliers like you in business. As a member of the Sonoran Arthropod Studies Institute (SASI), I was there there when they closed. I was given a box of “teacher stuff”. In this great box of supplies and ideas was a folder containing your kite flyer and scraps from various kits. I was pleasantly surprised to find your website yesterday! I am so glad you are still in business! I will send you pics and perhaps even video of your great product in action at this school wide event.
Thank you so very much!
We did our kite project with 28 campers and 8 adults in three separate groups. These were kids who range in age from 9 to 11 (give or take) with a wide range of attention spans and abilities. Two of us put a kite together before having the kids do it, and we felt that there were too many steps for our kids (and adults) to tackle. We wanted this project to be fun for the campers and frustration free for the counselors getting them through it. So we “prepped” the kites ahead of time – we did all the cutting, taping, hole punching, and sliding the stiffeners in. So the campers got to decorate them, put the strings on them (with counselor assistance), and fly them… and they did fly. Kids were happy. Counselors were happy. Parents were impressed when they saw them on pick-up day. Over all, we feel it was a successful project. Our only critique is that there were too many steps to have young children do. Hope this feedback is helpful – it is the spirit in which we give it.
Thank you! Will refer you to our local school systems. Awesome service!
I ordered your sled kites for families at our church’s family camp week, and we had about 10 families participate, and they really enjoyed the decorating part, and how easy it was to put together! But the best part was flying them! The kids were from around 3 to 7, and the kites flew with almost no effort, they just held up the kites and they flew beautifully! I wasn’t able to get out there and get pictures of that, but I do have a few of the decorating etc. The kites and everything arrived just as expected. The materials to make a sample were a big help too!
