Flying kites has changed over the years. It's a great family activity. There are many kinds of kites, something for everyone.  The traditional single line kites, fancy show kites, duel-line and quad-line sport kites, fighters, traction/power kites. Kites can range from a couple dollars at the department store to several thousand dollars for the giant show kites.
