Although I think of the month of April as being the month for April showers, did you know that National Kite Flying Month runs from the 31st of March to the 30th of April? So let’s celebrate… and may I say with all good intentions… Go fly a kite!
When was the last time—if ever—you flew a kite? Take time this month to enjoy a timeless activity with family and friends of any age. These 5 guidelines will make it more enjoyable for you and others.
* Learn how it works before venturing out
Flying a kite requires responsibility. It’s just like taking golf lessons when you get your first set of clubs. Here’s how to get started: “How to Fly a Kite
* Be aware of your surroundings
Many sports kites can fly as fast as 100 miles an hour and cause great harm. If you choose to fly this kind of kite, never dive or swoop over the heads of nearby people or animals, or over buildings.
* Understand who’s in control. It won’t be you
Unpredictable wind gusts or a broken kite will cause your kite to fly out of your control. If this happens, yell to warn anyone in potential danger.
* Stay away from other kite flyers
Keep your hands, feet, children, and pets off other people’s kites, lines, and other equipment.
* Keep lines separate
Do not fly your kite close enough to collide, tangle with, or cut other people’s kite lines. Even if you’d like to do so in fun, it’s not funny.
