How Make a Kite: Fly Kites Making Plans Directions Home Made Build Plan

Though marble time can't always last, Though time for spinning tops is past, The winds of March blow kite time here, And April fools' day, too draws near. By Dan Beard Kite making time begins with March, or used to when the writer was a boy, in Cincinnati. Even the blustering March wind must be weaker in the Ohio River Valley than here on the coast. If someone had imported an ordinary New York kite into Ohio and shown it to the boys there they would have told him to go and get a shingle and it would fly better, but now the author must modify his judgment and admit that the heavy sticks and apparently careless pasting on the Atlantic-coast kites are necessary to give them strength to brave the gales from off the ocean. Grave professors and men of dry scientific minds often take to boys' sports in a heavy, ponderous fashion, and try to demonstrate some pet theory of their own by means of the boys' playthings.
