Build and Fly a Kite with your Kids

The class is Aug. 15 at the Boston Center for Adult Education.

Kids love kites. It's a proven fact (right)?

On Sat. Aug. 13, kids can learn how to make their own kites during a class at the 's child enrichment program, Bean City Kids.

"Let's Go Fly a Kite," a one session class from 10 a.m. - 12:30 p.m., will introduce parents and children to the simple joy of kites, including their history and the force that makes them fly.

Designed for children ages 5 and up, the class will walk kids and their parents through step-by-step instructions, and help answer questions like: “Why do kites have different shapes?,” “Do kites need tails?,” and  “Where were kites invented?” 

After the children build their own ultra-lite kite, take a walk to the Boston Common for a test drive and special tips on how to get the kite in the air and keep it there.
