Spring is in the air: Go fly a kite!

Posted March 18, 2011, at 2:07 p.m.

With tuppence for paper and strings,

you can have your own set of wings.

With your feet on the ground, you’re a bird in flight!

With your fist holding tight to the string of your kite!

Get the kids — and yourself — out of the house on this blustery early-spring weekend. Click here for directions for building your own kite or pick one up from a local retailer. Beaches and open fields are best for kite-flying — be sure to stay away from power lines! And please, take some pictures and email them to me at mhaskell@bangordailynews.com (If it turns cold, you can always snuggle in to watch Mary Poppins…) — Meg Haskell, BDN
