To save you some bother, I've conveniently listed some good sites which provide a variety of great clip art depicting kites. I also give detailed instructions to find and use the site's search function, so it returns only relevant clip-art results.

Although there's plenty of free clip art on the Web, you will find that very little of it is searchable. Hence you can't select out just the kite-related stuff. You will probably have to spend a few dollars to get quality images onto your hard drive. Times have changed!

When the weather's good and you have the time, it's great to get out with a kite or 3. But what about on bad weather days? Then it's time to pull out...

"Kites Up!" - my downloadable kite-flying board game! Apart from towing indoor kites, doing a spot of imaginary flying is the next best thing :-)

Some Good Sources Of Kite Clip Art

The images on the listed sites tend to belong to one of the following types...
