Here’s all that you need to know for putting on this sky-high event. Spring + Summer Family Ministry Event: Kite-Flying Event The Set-Up Send out an invite to families. Have them bring kites to a large field or park that’s free of trees and power lines. Families can take turns flying their kites. You can even use this event as an outreach to new families. A Sweet-Treat Serve everyone diamond-shaped cookies decorated with colored frosting and sprinkles—and don’t forget to add licorice whip kite tails to the cookies. A Short Devotional Close with a short devotion about how the Holy Spirit can be our “wind” to pick us up so we can soar. A Quick Tips for Hosting a Kite-Flying Event Assemble kites according to the directions, or they may not fly. Check wind speed. Wind that’s 5 to 25 miles per hour is best for kite-flying. Don’t fly kites in inclement weather. Rain or lightning is dangerous to kites — and kite fliers. Never fly kites near airports, close to power lines, or over roads.
