Let’s Go Fly a Kite!

March is a great month for kite flying!  The weather changes often and we can have great winds, especially at the beaches here in Florida. Today’s masterpiece by British female artist Laura Knight (1877-1970) for children is precious and makes me want to join the fun.  Sit for a moment and see if your child will engage with you to answer the questions below interacting as you share the joy of art through this beautiful masterpiece with them!
