Make your own kite!
Kites have played an important part in Māori culture for a long time, especially during the winter when they are flown to celebrate the start of Matariki, the Māori New Year.
The Māori kite can be called manu tukutuku (manu meaning either kite or bird) or pākau, which means bird wing. Māori flew kites for fun and to communicate, but they were also used as a way to connect with those that have passed on (died) as, according to custom, they fly close to the stars.
Go Fly a Kite! Why would an air force pilot need a kite? During World War Two, kites were used by air force pilots in life rafts after being shot down by an enemy. Can you guess why?
