Hundreds of 'butterfly-shaped kites' to take to the skies

Kite flying has been a traditional pastime for children for centuries. Weifang, Shandong, China is known as the kite capital of the world as people consider Weifang to be the birthplace of kites. People in the city fly kites as a leisure outdoor activity. The designs on many Chinese kites have a symbolic meaning or illustrations from Chinese folklore or history.

The Butterfly-shaped kites are very beautiful and popular with the kids and adults. The summer camp activity center is reviving this leisure activity through its monthly 'My Butterfly Kite flying' event, where visitors, children and families, can join in the fun and fly butterfly-shaped kites.

There will also be quizzes with great prizes up for grabs, stated a press release from the activity center.

The social campaign aims to create a "butterfly effect" of green growth ideas.

The original butterfly effect concept comes from the chaos theory made popular by mathematician and meteorologist Edward Lorenz. According to the theory a small action in one place can create a bigger impact elsewhere, this activity aims to set an example to promote and inspire sustainable actions.

The butterfly kite flying event is a terrific opportunity for us to create awareness of the origin and history of kites and what each of us can do to contribute to a better tomorrow. We hope that every time someone flies one of our beautiful butterfly kites or sees a butterfly, it will remind them of how their actions will affect the future."
