April – The Month of Kite Making
April 1-30th is National Kite Month A whole month of kite making! Thirty days devoted just to kite making, kite history and kite flying, just plain good old-fashion kite fun!
What could be better!! April, as the first full month of Spring, is the perfect time to clean out the cobwebs and let out the kite line. Spring weather encourages people to get outside and become active again. We begin a fresh start after being cooped up indoors during the dark, colder months. Even the green shoots of new grass signal a fresh, invigorating start to our daily life.
Many ways to enjoy kites
National Kite Month is all about kites, making kites, flying kites and sharing kites with others. There are many ways to do this:
Make a kite with friends or family, then fly your project.
Organize a kite festival for your town, park, school, library, scout group.
If your birthday falls during April, celebrate with kite making and kite flying. Top off the day with great kite looking desserts.
Teach someone about kites–their science and scientific impact, cultural backgrounds, historical significance.
