When you decorate a kite, it becomes your kite. It feels great to fly your own kite!
This STEAM bundle includes 3 of the most recognizable kite shapes flown around the world. Each with its own flight characteristics.
All of the kites in this special bundle can be made and flown as part of a ‘lesson plan’ or just for fun. We have offered suggestions for each kite with fun changes you can make.
