flying a kite with kids is brilliant, brilliant inexpensive fun, plus all the running about in the fresh air tires the little angels out. win. but up until now finding a traditional looking kite has been a little bit tricky (trust me, i've spent a lot of time looking for one) but rest easy my friends, because today i give to you a kite that looks just like the ones in mary poppins (although there's no need to craft this one out of paper and string and tie a suffragette sash to it)....
