Kids and Kites Day planned at Navajo State Park

Special to The SUN

Children age 6 and older are invited to a kite-making and kite-flying event at Navajo State Park on Sunday, May 25.

Colorado Parks and Wildlife will supply materials and instruction so kids can build their own kites. Starting at 9 a.m. at the Rosa Campground shower building, kids will construct and paint their kites. After the paint has dried, participants will gather at 6 p.m. near the Tiffany Campground to fly their new creations.

The classic diamond kites will measure 26 inches by 26 inches.

Children should wear sturdy shoes and be dressed appropriately for the weather.

The class is limited to 10 kids. To sign up for the class, call the park at 883-2208.

The program is free, but every vehicle entering the park must have a pass. The daily entry fee is $7.
