Celebrating kids of all abilities

The Kids+Kites Festival is on Sunday, 21 March at Rippleside Park.

The team at Kids Plus Foundation is super excited to announce its first-ever Kids+Kites Festival, a colourful family event designed to bring people of all abilities together and celebrate inclusiveness and diversity for a funfilled day of kite flying.

The wonderful day will feature kite flying displays by Jo Baker, the world champion kite flyer, as well as kitemaking workshops run by Kites 4 Kids.

Not to be missed is when the entire gathering will fly kites to “paint the sky with colour” – like a vibrant daytime fireworks display minus the thunderous noise. Families are encouraged to bring along a picnic lunch.

The Kids+Kites Festival will also raise vital funds for Kids Plus through the sale of kites to fly on the day, which can be purchased at the kite shop at www. kidspluskitesfestival.com.au


A not-for-profit organisation founded in Geelong in 2003, Kids Plus provides specialist physiotherapy, occupational therapy, speech pathology, music therapy and social work services to babies, children and young adults with neurological physical disabilities.

Programs and workshops are designed to ensure that families have access to courses, information and support that is participant-focused, but also encompasses the whole family.

Kids+Kites Festival is designed to promote a sense of belonging, and social and community connection, improved mental and physical health, confidence in participating in community, and family cohesion. It’s for people of all ages and abilities.
