Make a Box Kite

This fine flyer was made in one evening with the family. We used materials that we had on hand: drawing paper from a scroll, packing tape, cast off wood scraps near the saw, and markers to decorate. Eric bought the string.

The construction was surprisingly easy. It's not rocket science, but we looked for guidance from some rocket scientists at NASA.

The winds were fierce at Ventura's Emma Wood State Beach, but the kite sailed high.

In the end, the dirt was most compelling.
