Before there were computer games, before there were remote-controlled cars and planes, before toy guns and electronic gadgets, there were kites! With a history of over 3000 years, kites are among the oldest entertainers of children and elders alike. As a longstanding tradition passed from generation to generation, taking a child to fly a kite often reminds parents of their childhood when they first flew a kite with their own parents.
As simple as it is to hand over the kite to the force of the wind and watch it soar into the sky, this experience doesn’t fail to fill both children and adults with wonder and joy every single time. Flying a kite together, in a park or at the beach, is an entertaining and bonding experience for the entire family. The sight of a colorful kite catching the gentle breeze to jump up—each time a little higher— is at once lifting and calming: exciting as it is to watch the kite drift apart, this experience as a whole reconnects us with nature, its forces and its beauties.
