Simply Kites

Last week the kids taught me one of the secrets of youth.  It started when they wanted to make kites.
I started talking about patterns and folding and frames and Kaia just said, "No, Mommy.  I can make it!  I just need a white piece of paper."  

So I gave her and her friends each a white sheet of paper.  Then I waited.  They colored.  They cut.  They taped.  I didn't even help.  Soon they each had a paper-yarn kite.  Kaia's was a "Rainbow Kite."

It turns out that wind blows paper-yarn kites just as well as any other kite, especially if you run.  
The Secret of Youth?  Life is sweet.  Keep it simple.

It's true. Kids know simple. They know simple works. That's what make them so smart! LOL. Adults tend to over think everything & complicate it... b/c that's our nature. Good post. Simple :)
