Children’s Story Trail and Craft – Kite Flying

Trailside Museum building in River Forest

Date & Time:

Sat, May 22 • 9 am - 4 pm


Trailside Museum of Natural History
738 Thatcher Ave
River Forest, IL 60305 (view web map)


Our story this windy month is about how one family makes their own kite in the book Kite Flying by Grace Lin.  Find out how kites were invented in China and how they have special meanings.  Walk a short trail near the museum while you enjoy reading the story on signs posted along the way. Afterwards, stop by the Museum to pick up a kite craft and activities bag to continue the adventure!

All participants are required to wear masks and practice physical distancing.
