TESTIMONIALS

Greg and Jackie are fantastic to work with, and are running a truly educational, affordable and
enjoyable in-school field trip for children of all ages!  Over the past six years, I have contacted
Kites for Kids six times to come into elementary schools, middle school and after school programs
to share their knowledge, history and creativity around kites.  Students love Greg's Kimono,
the Extreme Kiting video, his large sport-related kites, as well as having the opportunity to
make their own kite.  Flying the kites at the conclusion of the day is a highlight every year.
Thanks so much for providing such a great opportunity for
the students of Massachusetts, and beyond!

I was impressed by Greg’s ability to engage my students and respond to group dynamics.
He provides the right level of support; he gives clear directions, allows students to make
the kite themselves, then gently helps them if they’ve done it wrong. His program has a
valuable explicit and implicit message: you can design solutions to problems, and you
often make mistakes on the way to the design that works. Kites for Kids is well worth
the cost, especially considering each student gets to take home a kite.

"Kite for Kids is a fun, interactive, and informative experience
that is sure to entertain any audience.
The children enjoy learning about different types of kites
and they love having the opportunity to
create their own unique kite.

The children especially love flying their
own personalized kites out
in our school fields.

Greg always does a wonderful job of making
everyone feel successful when
it comes to flying their kites and his passion for his work is
clear in everything that he does.

From assembly to flight, the children are always engaged
and excited throughout the program.
We look forward to Greg's next visit with
us at the Alden/DMS Extended Day Program!"

 "Our third and fourth graders were engaged during the history of kiting.
They loved decorating their own kites and were thrilled to participate
in the kite assembly. Flying their kites together on the beach
at low tide was the perfect way to culminate their learning.  Jackie and Greg
were great to work with, flexible in planning the day to accommodate
our student schedule and the tide chart. Greg has a terrific way
of interacting with the students. I think students will
remember this as one of the best activities of the school year."

"We brought our three grandchildren, ages 11, 9 and 6 to your recent kite workshop.
They had an ASTOUNDING time.
Thank you for providing such an interesting, educational and creative experience for them.
The kites flew GREAT and they were thrilled.

Never once all day did any of the kids say they were bored or ask to go home.
What they did say when we called for "lunch" was "OK, but can we fly our kites again after lunch?"

We might get them away from their video games more often -
they now ask us to take them to go fly their kites! And for this, we are truly grateful.

Fran and Theresa Colman of Pembroke, MA"
