Kites were invented by Han Sin for use in Chinese wars in 206 B.C. Kite flying is also an ancient sport in China. Kites are pieces of cloth that cover wooden sticks. Some kites are so large that it takes several men to launch and fly them. Today kites are flown in competitive sports, for military or scientific purposes, and as a relaxing hobby or pastime.
