Living in a state as windy as Kansas, one of our favorite activities to do outdoors is fly a kite! When the girls were toddlers and preschoolers, I adapted several ideas for a Kite theme.
1) Fly a Kite
Of course, the number one activity for a windy day is flying a kite! One thing we like to do is to get several different kinds of kites and “experiment”. Which one goes higher? Which one is easier to get in the air? How long can we keep it flying?
This kite is perfect for preschoolers — especially with gusty wind!
This is the perfect solution for a toddler or preschooler who wants to “fly” a kite by themselves.
Kites readily lend themselves to math exploration. Look for patterns, colors, and fractions!
4) More Kite Math
This is a more basic math activity for preschoolers and early elementary — and it’s a snack, too!
