Kites and Kite Flying


Kites are fun and a great way to exercise

Kites are a longtime favorite of children and adults. From the simple diamond kite to the more complex stunt kites and box kites, flying a kite is a great way to enjoy the outdoors. Flying kites can be a group or solo activity. Flying a kite is a form of exercise and also works on areas of physical coordination, gross and fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination. For additional suggested items and toys that encourage exercise and motor skill development please see our other sections including Play Tunnel and Nylon Playhouses and Outdoor Toys.

Kite flying also works on overall thought processes, action/consequence and problem solving as the kite flyer tries to control the actions of the kite. A diamond kite or a basic kite will be the easiest for young children to fly. Box kites, stunt kites and more elaborate shapes and designs like airplane kites are perfect for an older child/adult or a more experienced kite flyer. No matter what the shape there is a thrill of getting the kite in the air, soaring higher and higher.

Follow kite flying safety rules. Your kite will most likely come with some instructions and a wind rating. Do not fly your kite in winds that are too strong and of course do not fly during stormy weather. Your kite should only be flown in an open area away from power lines, airports, buildings and trees. Supervise younger children and teach everyone the basic safety rules. Do not chase a runaway kite onto a road and use caution if retrieving a kite from a tree or other tall object. Use care when landing your kite and when flying.
