April is National Kite Month and the Gays Mills Public Library invites you to join the celebration by making your own kite from recycled materials.
On April 19 from 10 a.m. until noon, volunteers will be at the library to assist kite lovers with making and decorating their own kites. If you cannot arrive at 10, come later, but make sure to allow enough time to complete your kite!
For youngsters, our focus will be on creating simple kites from paper bags. If you can bring two large paper bags, we’ll help you use scissors, glue, and tape to make them fly. Kite artists will use crayons and markers to personalize their kite midway through the construction process.
If you have more advanced skills, feel free to look at some fancier kite options and create one on your own with basic tissue paper, pattern paper, and wooden flats provided by the library.
