hot five: parks for flying kites


Rarely a windy day goes past in Mamma's house without grabbing the kite and heading to the nearest park. It's a favourite family activity and great exercise too! Kites come in all shapes and sizes but the best option for Little Ones is the Pocket Kite available at the Scienceworks Shop for around $7.00. They are compact, no breakable bits and fly with little or no effort from you.

Remember you'll need more than a gentle breeze and plenty of space to send your kite soaring. Here's Mamma's Hot Five best parks for flying kites.
