Kite Flying

I heard that flying kites is one of the activities in Japan during new year. So this year I made a kite for my son. I remember when I was a child we always making a kite in different design, style and shapes. We always flying kite during summer vacation in Philippines because this was the time that the rice grains are already harvested and we a have a wide space to fly kite. This year I just made a simple Philippine style kite that can be made in 5 minutes. You can use plastic shopping bag, newspaper or used magazines, this time I used an old gift wrapper. My son was so happy because this was his first time to fly a kite. Next year I am planning to make a more complex kite for m son. I am planning to make a bird, caterpillar or an airplane kite. I will let my son to choose next year. =)
