My kite turned out to be a kind of Water Spirit! It would not like to fly very high. Although, it keeps in air very easily; you can walk with it, and it flows in the air - it´s very light. But if you really want to fly it, you have to tease it to go higher... I used a long time to trim the strings, and it still likes to fly rather low - and makes sudden dives! Maybe it needs a bigger tail... But it´s very lovely!
Earlier I also have made an Air Spirit kite. It´s made of cellophane, and has a huge tail made of bread bags and grocery bags, both plastic here... This kite goes as high as I have string! And when it´s that high, you can see only the tail fluttering in the air.
And then I have the Storm Spirit Windy - made of black waste bag! It´s a dog scarer...
I tried to take some photos of the Water Spirit, but in the bright sunlight I didn´t see anything through the camera. But I got some pics - coincidentally ;)

Unfortunately I don´t have any pics of children flying their kites. My DD1 was there, but she only took pics of her cute little daughter ;)
Here is one pic from our neighborhood´s fb site, taken by Ilpo Halonen. It´s an open fb group, so you can see it :)
