Adults Flying Kites –To Be a Kid Again!

Kite flying doesn’t have to be only for kids. There is a kid lingering in each adult and that kid comes out as soon as you hand an adult a kite. Sometimes we use kids as an excuse for us to engage in childlike activities–that works for me.  Sometimes, we participate in adult events using childlike activities to make participants more comfortable. Sometimes we use kite making and kite flying to bring generations together, becoming the perfect intergenerational happening! Sometimes adults flying kites is the perfect way to spend a day!

Adults Flying Kites for Family Reunionsadults flying kites

Family reunions are the perfect venue for kite making and kite flying, encouraging the best multi-generational mingling. Kiting is one of those activities that goes beyond age.  If the reunion is held near a beach, a field, a park, you have the area for the flying. In your planning check to see if  there is a shelter or an indoor space for making the kites near the area where the kite flying will occur.
