Kites have been a part of history for hundreds of years and is a craft and a sport widely participated in still today. Some cultures have special meanings for kite flying, but for many other people, it is a fun thing to do on a windy afternoon.

My name is Jen and this site is for the beginner, (like me!), and has stories and tips from others more experienced than I! There are also some stories explaining how the kite was created and where it is from. Enjoy the site and let me know what you think!
