Kites were invented by the Chinese people over 2000 years ago. about in the 12th century, Chinese kite spread to the West and oriental and Western kite culture was formed after years of development. In this process, the traditional culture integrated with the kite craft, and finally formed the kite culture with unique characteristics.
Uses of kite have been changed several times in history. According to historical record, kite was first used in military. In the mid Tang Dynasty (618-907), in which the society was stable and peaceful, the use of kites was gradually changed from military to entertainment. With the innovation of papermaking, the raw material of kite changed from silk to paper. Kite became popular among civilians with a richer variety of forms and reached the peak point in the Song Dynasty (960-1279). Participated by the literary, the making and the decoration of kites underwent great development. Kite making became a profession due to the large demand.

The Ming (1368-1644) and Qing dynasties,was the peak period of the Chinese kite. The kites underwent great development in size, design, decoration and flying skills.

中国传统风筝
风筝是中国人发明的,距今已有2000余年的历史。大约在公元12世纪,中国风筝传到了西方,此后经过不断发展,逐渐形成各具特色的东西方风筝文化。在风筝的发展过程中,具有悠久历史的中国传统文化开始与风筝工艺相融合,将神话故事、花鸟瑞兽、吉祥寓意等表现在风筝上,从而形成了独具地方特色的风筝文化。

在历史上,风筝的用途曾有过多次转换。根据史书记载,风筝的最初功用是用于军事。到了唐代(公元618~907年)中期,社会进入了繁荣稳定的发展阶段,风筝的功用开始从军事用途转向娱乐,同时由于纸业的发展,风筝的制作材料也由丝绢转而开始使用纸张。风筝逐渐走向民间,类型也丰富起来。宋代(公元960~1279年),风筝的流传更为广泛。当时由于文人的参加,风筝在扎制和装饰上都有了很大的发展。同时由于社会上对风筝的需求,制作风筝发展为一种专门的职业。

明清时代(公元1368~1911年)是中国风筝发展的鼎盛时期,明清风筝在大小、样式、扎制技术、装饰和放飞技艺上都有了超越前代的巨大进步。当时的文人亲手扎绘风筝,除自己放飞外,还赠送亲友,并认为这是一种极为风雅的活动。近年来,中国的风筝事业得到了长足的发展,放风筝开始作为体育运动项目和健身娱乐活动普及起来。

中国风筝以细竹扎成骨架,再糊以纸或绢制作而成。传统的中国风筝工艺包括"扎、糊、绘、放"四种技艺,"扎"即要达到对称,使风筝左右两侧的受风面积相当;"糊"即要保证整体平整,干净利落;"绘"即要做到远眺清楚,近看真实的效果;"放"即要依据风力调整提线角度。风筝的种类主要分为"硬翅"和"软翅"两类,"硬翅"风筝翅膀坚硬,吃风大,飞的高。"软翅"风筝柔软,飞不高,但飞的远。在样式上,除传统的禽、兽、虫、鱼外,近代还发展出了人物风筝等新样式。 中国地域辽阔,风筝作为中国的传统文化和民间艺术,在长期发展过程中,产生出许多具有不同地域特色的种类、样式和流派。其中以北京、天津、山东潍坊、四川、广东所制的风筝最为著名。
