Let’s go fly a kite!

Father Christmas brought Little J a kite for Christmas.  Since then, I have been periodically asked if it is kite flying weather.  When I was on my run, aiming to do 10 miles, in the still, foggy, muggy heat this morning, I would never have imagined the day could turn into such perfect weather for kite flying.  When I went out to hang the sheets on the line, I realised today was the day! Little J’s kite was very easy to put together.  Just one stick and attach the string.  Not like the red Peter Pal kite I remember my dad putting together when we were little.

Little J was so excited to see it in the sky, I wondered whether we would be able to fly the kite in the back garden.

Not quite enough space or wind.  We are very fortunate to be a few meters away from a beautiful open green in our village.  A quick change of shorts and we were back onto mission kite flying.

We have lift off, after a little run of course!  A little practise was required.

It wasn’t long before Little J realised he could chase his big sister around with the kite!

Kite flying is such a fabulous way to spend time outside.  I am going to put it in the car, ready to enjoy at every opportunity.

  1. We still haven’t done this yet, and ours sits patiently in the car waiting for me to remember it’s there! I really need to take it out with me-maybe our next trip to Cornwall might provide the best time. You’re right, such simple fun, but magical nonetheless.


  2. We have a Christmas one still sitting in it’s packet too! I’m targetting the beach on a non surf day to give it a go. I think I am actually more excited than the kids but I bet they will be keen to join in once I start it off! Lovely your photos and videos, Little J is lucky to have a big sister to help and play with him and well done with the running. 10 miles is a serious distance! Thank you for sharing with me on Country Kids.


  3. At least you have a child friendly kite! Daddy P didn’t quite get the memo on that one and bought one that even he struggles to use. We used to fly our kites from Hengisbury Head as kids – no problem with lack of wind there!
