"Don't give them a kite: show them how to make their own so they can feel the thrill of having something they made fly and fly well."

Seen that first hand.

I once showed a neighbour's son (about 12 years old) how to build a sled kite from a bin liner and a couple of sticks (plus tape) I wasn't sure if he was just humouring me while cutting and sticking, but at the end after flying it he asked if it was OK for him to keep it?

I was genuinely surprised, how easily we forget the pleasure of actually making something and not from expensive kits.
