Over the summer we have been asked to make a kite,
so the first thing I set about doing was deciding what shape to make it
- which involved flying some kites on the beach on a windy day.
Of all the kites I flew, this parafoil shape (above)
seemed to work the best,
so I decided to base my kite on this design.
I also experimented with tying a carrier bag to some string,
and it flew surprisingly well, so this made me consider
using this material within the kite.
