Easy Kite to Make

It's so very windy today and so we made a very easy kite this evening and tried it out.  So simple all you need is a plastic carrier bag of any size and some wool or string.  Tie one end of the string or wool to the handles of the bag and, hey presto, kite finished!
Add some wind and you have a really easy activity which can spark plenty of questions about scientific topics such as weather, speed, flying, capacity.  Besides which kites are loads of fun and there is something very exhilarating about the wind which children seem to enjoy.
