Visitors coming to see, especially the children, showed great interest in the dragon kite more than 10m long, the flute kite made from bamboo tubes, etc.

The artists have pre-printed pictures of cartoon characters such as superheroes, princesses, Mickey Mouse… for the little ones to choose and color by themselves. After that, each of you was instructed to use a wooden stick and glue to glue the kite.

Finally, the artists will guide the children to tie the string and how to fly the kite so that the kite can fly high without spinning.

Baby Nguyen Ngoc Han (7 years old) said that she was very excited to be able to make and fly kites by herself at the park.

“This is my first time flying a kite,” said Han excitedly.

Ms. Nguyen Thi Dieu (34 years old, living in Hue city) said that she was very happy to see her child experience kite making and run and jump with the kite she made herself.

“Two years of the epidemic, so I only stayed at home to be friends with my phone and tablet. Now life is back to normal, seeing my son put his phone down and smile like that, I’m very happy.” Ms. Dieu said.
