We found out that on this special day in Japan the children make beautiful Coi Carp Kites, dress up in special costumes (like Kimonos) and eat special celebration foods. Everyone in the family makes a coi carp to celebrate children and to teach them to be strong and hardy like the carp fish (which swims against the current in rivers). You can read more about this festival here.
Later in the afternoon, our buddies from Room 7 came over and helped us add the streamers and string. Here are some pictures of us "Flying High" with our Coi Carp kites!
