Kites were invented in China in the 5th-century BC where materials ideal for kite building were readily available: silk fabric for sail material; fine, high-tensile-strength silk for flying line; and resilient bamboo for a strong, lightweight framework.
Kite Flying has since spread to all parts of the world and its a great way for the family to enjoy a fun day out. So mark your calendars.
