Go Fly a Kite! Today's kites are made of cloth, paper, plastic and other synthetic materials, and they come in all shapes, sizes, and colors. They range in price from a dollar to hundreds of dollars, but you can save money by making your own kite. If you recycle materials to do this, you'll help conserve landfill space and natural resources, too.
Kites, kids and education do mix! Kites are part of my life. My name is Dave Ellis and I am a retired educator. I worked with third and fifth graders in the Shawnee Mission School District located in Overland Park, Kansas, and I have an interest in kites and other flying objects.
Kites, kids and education do mix! I like to make and fly my own creations which are mostly single line, and I like to create something different than the norm. I do make and fly some stunt kites. I created kite in the picture, at the top of this page, which is a custom made kite with the Tiger school logo graphic where I taught for many years. I also like to fly my Tracer, Griffon, and Wizard. I also have an AM1 that I enjoy a lot.
Kites & Kite Flying Today's KITES are often huge hi-tech affairs made of space-age materials such as carbon fibre and decorated in a range of colours. From kites so large they can lift the people flying them off the ground to more delicate models which just look pretty, these riders on the wind provide exciting entertainment for the whole family!
