Go fly a kite! Yes, your kids will love flying a kite this summer. It’s a great and challenging way to enjoy the outdoors.

It’s also a great activity the whole family can do together and because it’s relatively inexpensive and can be done anywhere. Whether at the beach or in your backyard, flying a kite is a great way to spend the day, and of course, it’s amazing to watch a kite soar through the air.  If you and your kids need more reasons to channel Mary Poppins and the Banks children, April is also National Kite Month so spring is the perfect time to get out there.
