Christmas Kites

This year for family Christmas presents we made kites. We were talking about what to do for Christmas presents, and Tim said to me that he prefers to give homemade gifts.  I said that I was happy to make gifts, but this year I needed his help.  He then suggested we make kites for everyone, since that is something he enjoys.  Tim made some kites in high school, but hadn’t done any since then and never expected to be making kites with his wife. 🙂  We had a lot of fun making the kites together and we plan to keep making kites in the future.

Here are pictures of all the kites we made, as well as us making and testing some of the kites.  I did help make the kites, too, but I was always the one taking the pictures.  There wasn’t a whole lot of wind when we tested the kites, so Tim had to run around the park.  We weren’t able to get any pictures of the spinsock in action, but this video should give you an idea of what it looks like when it’s going, even though the one we made isn’t quite so massive.
