Kite making! The perfect fun project! Come to the Museum of Coastal Carolina at 11:00 on Mar. 5 and let Museum volunteer and docent Bruce Stedman show you how to make a sled kite from trash bags, dowel rods, and masking tape. All kite-making materials will be provided. Sled kites are simple to make and are usually very good fliers. Mr. Stedman will also talk about the history of kites and kite construction. Children who come to this program should be accompanied by an adult who can help them with kite construction. Construction time is about 45 minutes. When you have made your kite, walk one block to Ocean Isle Beach and give your new kite its first test flight!
