Bag kites

It was a very windy day. It's not like we're not used to strong winds where we live, but this windy day I really felt like we needed to be outside flying kites. However, we didn't have any kites...well, we did but the string was tangled and I wasn't going to waste hours attempting to untangle it. So instead we tied string/wool to plastic bags.
Obviously they're not designed to get a great lift
ummm yes, this is a doggie bag :)

All the kids flying their bag kites

They came up with a plan to get more lift in the their kites :)
It was a fun afternoon activity that got them outside despite the strong winds.
