Gabi Helps Elmo and Zoe Build Kites (#4044)

Zoe and Elmo see a movie about a kite festival and become very excited about flying kites. They decide to fly their own kites! When Zoe and Elmo find that Alan does not have kites at the store they are very sad. When they tell Gabi about their dilemma, she suggests they make their own kites and she volunteers to help. The three of them collect the necessary materials and follow the instructions in a book in order to make their own kites. When their kites are finished they notice another problem! There is no wind. Zoe suggests they try to make their own wind. They attempt to blow on the kites but this does not help. The Big Bad Wolf arrives and he is able to blow their kites into the sky. When he takes off for lunch their kites crash to the ground and are damaged. With Gabi's help, they realize that they can put the kites together to form one new kite. Then, they feel the wind picking up! Zoe and Elmo decide they can share one kite and fly it together. [54 minutes] Closed Captioning
