How to prepare:

Outdoor, covid-careful, open-air class. Work table will be shaded. Bring water and a midday snack for your child.

This class is designed for unattended children.

Parents should expect to drop their kids in the shade structure and enjoy the restaurant seating nearby. When the kites are finished, kids and kites bloom out of the classroom like an event in nature. At that point, parent-child kite flying is very encouraged.
