Although flying kites seems a seemingly childish distraction it can also be a hobby for all ages, being especially popular in China. It consists of making the kite: a very light object, such as a piece of candle, fabric or plastic or paper, mounted on a skeleton of wood, plastic or similar, attached to a long rope, rise and remain in the air, moving it or directing it according to our interest. Kites can be purchased complete or you can build them yourself.
It is a cheap, easy and comfortable hobby to practice, but it can also be more complicated with more sophisticated kites and two threads to do stunts. There are even kite contests. You can learn alone, with online information or, better, with someone who knows how to do well, preferably within a kite club.
