THE KIDS MADE THE KITE IN THE KITE MUSEUM


150 children living in Sultanbeyli have been able to visit Kite Museum in Üsküdar and have a chance to have a pleasant day full of learning and sharing within the scope of the Community Center Project and Children Caravan Project carried out by the International Blue Crescent Foundation in Istanbul. The event, which took place in cooperation with the International Blue Crescent Foundation (IBC) and the Refugees Association (Mülteci-Der), brought children from Syrians and Turkish citizens together. The students visited the museum with their friends and at the same time, they made their own kites with the instructors.

 

Visit program, which lasted about two hours, began with a kite-making workshop. Children divided into two groups according to age range, visited the museum in two groups and participated in synchronized workshop activities. Students involved in the kite workshop kite in their own chosen colors under supervision of museum instructors. With materials available in the museum, they were able to practice their dreams in a practical way and found the opportunity to develop their creators and enthusiasm. In the same workshop, other students watched the kite museum presentation. The presentation was realized by Mehmet Naci Aköz, the founder of the museum. Aköz, who represents Turkey at international kite festivals, told children about their lives with their kites. His dedication for kites and experiences of his life told the children in their eyes. The collection of kites from all over the world has given children moments they will never forget. Many different sizes, variety and elegant kites were presented to the likes of the kids and reminded them again that there was no limit in their imagination.

 

With the participation of student groups in two different workshops, all the children had their own kites and also made a short trip to the kites from all over the world with the museum presentation. The visit was ended with a collective photo in memory of the day.
