Papagayos translated really means parrot according to the Collins Spanish/English dictionary so I dont really know how this word was adopted for kite flying . Kite translated into spanish is cometa. So again I really dont know where Papagayos came from. Maybe someone who reads this may know!
The winds are blowing and the children are in heaven making and flying their kites. Whatever material of plastic they find will stir their imaginations .
They get stuck on the electric wires,they fall down with over weight or not enough wind.The tails of the kites shimmer and rustle beneath the sun. One can hear the whirling of the tail as they sore higher and higher.
It is so nice to see children making their own toys instead of bought ones. I feel it is better for young ones to use their imagination and creativity one never knows where it may lead to in life.
I can remember when young, my favourite thing to make was what we called stilts. These were made of cans of Lyle.s Golden Syrup.
My dad punched holes in the side so I could thread string through long enough to reach my hands. I jumped on the tins and had hours of fun clonking around the front street with my stilts
.How many of you can remember the things you used to make as a child that giave you hours of fun ?
