This weekend, our local park was filled
with families flying kites, and watching all of those little kids out there, learning how to make their kite dip and dance, inspired us to seek out a great kite resource.
Into The Wind
is a Colorado-based kite company founded in 1980 by architects George Emmons and Jim Glass. What we love about Into The Wind is that it is both an online kite store, and a resource for all things kite-related. If you are new to kite flying, you might want to check out their Kite 101
site for tips, tricks, and instruction. While you might not be ready for the M-Quad stunt kite
, at right, below are a few of our favorite family kites.
The Astro Star
is a great box kite for gusty winds. 4'x3', this is a big, big kite! $36.00.
Paint your own! The Paint A Diamond kite kit comes with 8 acrylic paints so that the kids can design their own kite before they fly it. $16.95.
Can't fly a kite? Everyone can fly a Solar Balloon. Just fill it with air, and let nature take its course. $3.99.
Right now, we can't imagine anything more fun than a few hours of running around our local park with a pack of kids, launching kites and drinking lemonade. If you feel the same way, check out Into The Wind's big selection of kites and kite accessories.
