Kites have a couple of properties that will help us identify them from other quadrilaterals (1) the diagonals of a kite meet at a right angle (2) kites have exactly one pair of opposite angles that are congruent. Kites are enjoyed by people of all ages and many people make their own kites at home kites can be made from a wide variety of materials, though plastic sheeting and wooden dowels are commonly used and are readily available and easy to work with for beginning hobbyists.
