On the weekend …
My son has been very interested in kites lately, so we got ours out of the shed, since we had a windy weekend.
If you’d like to give it a try eHow has instructions on how to fly a kite. You can get instructions that don’t involve running, but really who doesn’t want their child to run around a bit.
ABC and 123 has a roundup of kite projects if you feel like making your own kites, doing some kite crafts, learning the science or history of kite flying or many other activities for a kite theme. You could also try making the fish kite I posted about a little while ago.
