When it comes to outdoor sports for kids, kite flying may not be at the top of your list. It is interesting to note, however, that flying a kite does have a few great benefits including helping to develop strength, coordination and critical thinking. Besides getting your kids out of the house, off the iPad and into the sunshine, learning to launch and control a kite also takes skills and strength that can ultimately contribute to improved decision making and problem-solving in the future.

If you are ready to get your kids started in the art of kite flying or simply have an upcoming vacation, beach or park day, then we have found some of the best kites for kids listed below. Our options are all great starter kites, require little to no assembly, are easy to fly and come in bright colors and shapes to keep everyone in your group engaged and in awe.

These kites are all specially designed to be stable and are made from lightweight, quality fabrics that allow them to fly easily, even with minimal wind. The kites listed that come with frames or rods are large in size, assemble easily and help the kite to hold its shape, giving you the best flying experience. The other options are pocket-style kites, which while still large in size, don’t require any type of assembly and can be tucked away small at the end of the day, making them easy to carry around.

Both styles of kites are great for kids and will pretty much fly even in the slightest of wind speeds, making for a fun and relaxing experience.
