Diabolo is a Chinese folk game that involves a barbell-shaped hollow toy that is manipulated on a string tied to two sticks, which are held in the hands. The diabolo will spin as it is worked from side to side, and can be flung into the air and retrieved again while still spinning. If spun fast enough, the diabolo lets out a humming sound. Producing and maintaining the spinning and humming keeps the player's adrenalin rushing with excitement. Tricks can be mastered when the game is practiced and learnt. This is an interesting game enjoyed by both young and old alike.

Shuttlecock kicking

Named after its basic idea, shuttlecock kicking is a fun and easy game to master. It is usually played in pairs, where the players kick the shuttlecock back and forth. There are no specific styles and methods of kicking, just as long as the shuttlecock remains in the air and not on the ground. Masters of this game display impressive feats, which would amaze viewers. This is a popular folk game especially among the Chinese children.

Jumping rope

Jumping rope is a good exercise that works all parts of the body. This exercise can be done alone, in pairs, or with several people together. Again, there are no limitations to the way you jump, but concentration and coordination is important between participants. This is a popular children's activity at outdoor gatherings.

Top spinning

Most Chinese folk games are designed for children. Top spinning is one of them. Nevertheless, adults do occasionally take part in this game even at competitive levels. Top sizes range from miniature to giant, and may be made from metal, wood, or plastic. The adult tops are usually made of wood and weigh up to 110 pounds each. When spun, these tops will definitely be a magnificent sight to see.
