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 email@example.com (If it turns cold, you can always snuggle in to watch Mary Poppins…) — Meg Haskell, BDN
