Chinese Kite

The History of Chinese Kite

Kites have a long and fascinating history in China, dating back over 2,000 years. Legend has it that the first kite was invented by a Chinese farmer named Lu Ban, who used bamboo and silk to make a simple kite that could be used to scare off birds from his crops.

Kites quickly became popular in China and were used for a variety of purposes, including military signaling, measuring distances, and even carrying people into the air. During the Tang Dynasty (618-907), kites were used as part of religious ceremonies and were believed to be able to ward off evil spirits.

In the Song Dynasty (960-1279), kites became a popular pastime for people of all ages, and elaborate kite festivals were held throughout the country. The designs of kites became increasingly intricate, with kites shaped like animals, people, and even buildings.

During the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644), kite flying became an art form, with skilled kite makers creating complex designs and adding decorative touches such as ribbons and tassels. The most famous kite maker of this era was Wei Yuantai, who was known for his lifelike bird-shaped kites.

Today, kites are still popular in China, with many traditional designs still in use, as well as new and innovative designs being created. Kite flying is seen as a symbol of freedom and creativity, and kite festivals are still held in many parts of the country.

How to Play Chinese Kite?

Playing with a Chinese kite can be a fun and enjoyable activity for people of all ages. Here are some basic steps on how to play with a Chinese kite:

  1. Choose an open and spacious location, preferably with some wind. A park or beach is a good choice.
  2. Unroll the kite string and lay the kite on the ground. Hold the kite by the bridle point (the center of the kite) and walk backwards, letting the kite catch the wind.
  3. Once the kite has caught the wind, slowly release the string, allowing the kite to fly higher and higher.
  4. To make the kite fly higher, gently pull the string while walking backwards. To make the kite come down, release the string slowly.
  5. When the kite is in the air, try to maneuver it by pulling on the left or right side of the string. This will make the kite turn left or right.
  6. Be aware of other kite flyers around you and try to avoid their kites to prevent tangling of the strings.
  7. To bring the kite down, slowly reel in the string while walking towards the kite.
