let’s go fly a kite
Kites! Is there anything more representative of being carefree than a kite soaring across the sky? There’s an old saying in China – “those who fly a kite can have a long life”. Here are some reasons why kite flying is associated with good health.
Spending time outdoors is an easy way to increase physical activity, levels of vitamin D and reduce anxiety and stress. Flying a kite is a great excuse to spend time outside and soak up some fun and sun.
Flying a kite requires focus – one must pay attention to the shifting breeze to keep the kite aloft. There are so many benefits to helping kids increase their ability to focus, from better results in a school setting to increased enjoyment in reading and other independent learning situations.
Flying a kite is also wonderful for contemplating the natural world’s beauty. Feeling the breeze, gazing at the sky, and feeling the sand or grass beneath your feet is a wonderful way to appreciate the beauty we have access to every day.
Plus, flying a kite is a fantastic way to have fun as a group and encourage social skills in children. Kites can be flown by a variety of ages and it’s fun to be the kite flyer or the kite watcher. It’s a great family activity, as folks of most ages, sizes and physical abilities can take part. It’s an easy way to make some treasured family memories.
