How to Choose the Best Kite for Kids

Today the choices are endless for the best kite for kids unlike when I was a kid we would tie two sticks together in across. Then run a string around it and glue some newspaper to it and take another piece of string and make a slight bow on the cross stick. Then on the center of the crossed sticks we would attach the string we would fly it with. We would add some of mom’s old warn out sheets torn in 1 ½ inch wide strips and tie it on for a tail. These were the simple delta shaped kites and sizes varied from 30” to 60”. They were simple to build and simple to fly.

Today it is another story you need guidelines or some real help in deciding which on the best kite for kids. Choosing is a tough job because there are so many different types, styles and shapes. But most of all you want a kite that your child will be successful flying when he is just starting out. The later he can move up to some of the more complicated two lines and four line stunt kites.

The Best Kite for Kids is Not an Easy Question to Answer

So here are your guidelines to follow in making your selection of the best kite for kids. Instead of going for the luck of the draw here are the best tips for making an informed selection the first time.

Flying kites: Size matters because the very small kite may be very hard for a child to control. Many will require very quick responses for successful flight that young children are not ready for yet. Very large kites can be dangerous to kids exerting more force on the child than they can handle safely.

Kite Weight: Heavy kites require more wind than a lightweight kite. The lightweight kite will be much easier to get up into the air than a very heavy kite would be. For very young children starting out whatever is easier to fly is always better.

Kite Designs: The basic delta kite maybe the best to start with because it is controlled with a single control line and is very simple fly starting out. The stunt kite or sport kite in their basic design come in 2 control line designs. The more complicated designs have 4 control line designs that can be much larger. The delta kite can be made with supplies from a craft shop or what you have around the house. Buying them is not bad either because they can go for a couple of bucks and up. Flying what they build sometimes is a lot more fun.

Kite Colors: If you decide to buy consider flashy colors in your selection. Children a visually stimulated with bright colors and their attention will stay on the multi-colored kite much longer than the flat single color kite.

Kite Types: Should you go straight for the stunt kite as a first kite for your child? Unless you know how to fly one yourself I say no, start with the traditional delta kite first because it is the easiest to fly. Sure a stunt kite is much more entertaining and can do tricks and maneuvers that are as fun to watch as they are to perform. There is a bit of a learning curve that can discourage a child before he learns how to just get it in the air. Unless you know how to fly a stunt kite or plan to learn how to fly one first. Start with a kite your child can fly easily then move up to the more complicated types.

Kite Durability: This plays a part somewhat in the cost simple plastic or wood spars will be less expensive. But they are not very durable and tend to break easily. Moving up in price adds more durability with carbon fiber spars, rip-stop nylon or polyester and braided spectra line that has not stretch.

Kite Flying Location: Children need a safe place to fly a kite away from obstructions like power lines. Parks and beaches sometimes are the best and safest locations for kite flying. They do need an open field with no obstruction can ruin your day to fly safely.

Kites are loads of fun for kids and spectators so keep these tips and guidelines in mind when selecting the best kite for kids. We always want them to succeed and have fun because the hobby is fun for all.
