Ancient China for Kids

Ancient Chinese children played with all kinds of toys. They played with colorful marbles, small carved figures of animals and dragons, puppets, masks, kites, and roly-poly figures that rolled and make noise like a rattle. The Chinese loved toys that made noise. They played with whistles, bamboo flutes (used as musical instruments and toys), reed pipes, and colorful rattles. Boys played with swords. Girls played with baby dolls. They played a game we call Chinese Checkers.
