Kite K is a very classic letter of the week activity, not my most creative but my son enjoyed it. We decided on it because the wind has been strong and even caused some power outages last week in our area. So we talked all about it and when deciding on a letter craft to make settled on Kite k! If you want to make this activity last longer you can add bows along the strings, and wind swirls on the blue paper! Don’t forget to take the time when you are making this to brainstorm K words with your child. Ours this week were Key, Kick and Kitten.
- Gather your materials. You will need a 2 pieces of construction paper, some paint, scissors, some yarn/string or thin ribbon, glue and a marker.
- Start by writing a lowercase k on your paper, also make some diamonds for the kites.
- Invite your child to paint the k and the kites however they want.
- Cut the k out and glue onto the 2nd piece of construction paper.
- Cut the yarn into 2 strings.
- Add glue for the strings and kites
- Add the strings on.
- Add the kites
- Let dry.
Books About Wind
That “How the Ladies Stopped the Wind” book looks too cute! I’ll have to look for that at our library!
“How the Ladies Stopped the Wind”! Must have that book-Amazon here I come!
My favourite book about wind is Amelia Ellicott’s Garden written by Liliana Stafford and illustrated by the amazing Stephen Michael King.
It is such a beautiful story about an old lady who lies alone by a block of flats. She keeps chickens and one day there is a huge storm and the wind whips away her chickens and most of her backyard. The story is also about community and getting to know your neighbours, as all the people living in the high rise flats rush to help her recover all the things that have been blowen away.
