The kites for the kids must fly well and easily, not pull
too much; they must be easy to make.
three models shown here have been fabricated by hundreds
of children with the kiters of the Cerf-Volant
Club of Cherbourg
with always a great success.
not forget that the young children fast grow weary on the
same activity. With the construction of the kite, arrange
changes with fabrication, decoration, speeches on the wind,
flying, the under 8 kids have often will to change for something
else after 30mn, and it may happen that they leave go the
easily make a kite, prepare gauges for drawing the
shapes.Give the children good quality scissors, well grinded,
with round ends. For the youngests, make cutting previously.
the reels, the flat bobbins are the more
suitable. They must be at least 120mm big. Some bobbins
sold in shops with line are really too small. Our preferenge
goes to the naked ones on which the children will themselves
wind up the 40 to 60m line necessary. This training will
dive them easiness in this movement without caring on the
the line, use twisted polyamid, 6660m/kg
strenght 6kg sold in 50 and 250g reels.
