Balloon Kites


Flying a kite is difficult and frustrating for toddlers and preschoolers. These "kites" are guaranteed to fly, even on days with light wind.

Materials
  • Large, round helium balloons
  • Kite string
  • Paper streamers (optional)

Directions

  1. Tie one end of a long length of kite string to a round helium balloon and the other to your child's wrist.
  2. He will find it fun and easy to fly his balloon, and you won't worry about crashes and tangles.
  3. Try attaching lengths of paper streamers to the balloon to give it a more authentic kite look.
