Wednesday Explorers Club ~ Catch the Wind

It's the first day of spring, and some of us are dreaming of heading out on a breezy day for a bit of kite-flying. After all, March is a windy month.

But kites aren't the only way to enjoy the wind. We have a "wind garden" around the house - chimes hanging from branches. They create a symphony of sound all year round. Some are finely-tuned, crafted by chime-makers. Others are shells, bamboo, spoons, and other things we've hung to capture the wind.

Up at the airport they catch the wind in a huge sock. And outside the monastery they've got strands and strands of prayer flags that flap in the breeze.

Here are directions on how to make a kite from a plastic garbage bag.
