We engineer an outdoor kite and learn to problem-solve as we learn how to fly it! Studies have shown that children need problem-solving skills for the jobs of the future! Kids also develop spatial awareness, hand-eye co-ordination and gross motor skills with this kite flying activity!
Book: Farmer Falgu Goes Kite Flying
Written by Chitra Soundar, Illustrated by Kanika Nair
Farmer Falgu and his daughter Eila head out to the annual village fair to fly their kite. On their way, Eila loses her kite to a strong wind. Can Farmer Falgu build her a new one?
Activity: Build an Outdoor Kite!
Put on your engineering hats and let's build an outdoor kite! Head out to your local park on a warm, windy day and problem-solve as you figure out how to set it to fly!
"This book took it a notch up for me. Be it the characters, Ahmed Chacha and Pushpa Didi, who hop on to Farmer Falgu's bullock cart for a ride! Or the lovely and bold illustrations of the sunflower fields or the kites flying ... every page that you turn, brings with it an actual village scene perfectly. Picture book lovers, young and old are sure to admire and enjoy this experience".
