I must have looked at 100 kites to figure out what makes them fly. I'm not sure what kites I like best--ones with lots of color and streamers are nice. Ones that are light and could actually get into the air would work for me. In the class I taught in the fall, we did windsocks made from a lunch bag and tissue paper streamers at school but they won't fly. They are fun but not durable. I like the idea of a diamond shaped kite or maybe a dragon. I will post links to some of the best ones I found this week.
