Today was the 82nd annual Zilker Kite Festival. I’d been looking forward to it for weeks and weeks, had this idea to make a little cloud kite for ages now. Then J had the idea to make a sun to go with the cloud, hee hee. We had tons of fun painting the designs, but even more fun flying the kites!
I can’t remember if I ever flew a kite before, but it was so easy and fun that I seemed like I’d been doing it forever. And my spirits soared right along with the kite!
(And! If you’d like try painting on a ripstop nylon kite, Claudine Hellmuth’s acrylic paint works great — it’s nice and thick and doesn’t run everywhere. Oh and if you’re looking for a kite, we got our blank ones from a local company who ships kites everywhere — World Wind Kites.)
What a great day! We’re going to take the kites out for another flight at the park down the street — it’s just too fun.
Now then, go fly a kite!
