Making Kites with Ledra and Ledros


Making Kites with Ledra and Ledros

Educational Activity for families with children

 

The Leventis Municipal Museum of Nicosia, in collaboration with the Cyprus Red Cross Society - Nicosia Branch, organizes its annual Educational Activity for families with children, titled “Making Kites with Ledra and Ledros”.

Grandparents, parents, and children are invited on Saturday 22 February, 14.30, to The Leventis Municipal Museum of Nicosia in order to participate in this unique Educational Activity. The event aims to revive the making of the traditional petasi (kite).

 

The Museum’s team has gathered valuable knowledge, time-tested techniques, and traditional materials in order to rekindle the memories of the older generation and allow them to pass their know-how and fun to the younger generation. Colourful papers, scissors, a bit of excitement and lots of imagination are all it takes to revive this traditional game! Participants will work in teams under the instructions and guidance of the Museum’s experienced staff in order to make their own special kite for Green Monday.

 

With participation fee at €20 per family (including materials for the making of one kite), we support the Cyprus Red Cross Society - Nicosia Branch’s humanitarian mission as we embrace our traditions and history.

 

For reservations please contact: 22661475 (ext. 106 and 110) / education@leventismuseum.org.cy

Seats are limited therefore you are encouraged to book your reservations early.
