Chinese New Year

Welcome to a couple activities that were available today
to celebrate Chinese New Year.
 We had tea with fortune cookies.
The fortune cookies are made from felt circles with a pipe cleaner
glued inside so they can bend.
It was fun to watch the children play with chop sticks.

One little boy came dressed in his finery.
It is beautiful.

At the art table there were materials to make dragon puppets.
Red cups and plates, googly eyes, wooden dowels and crepe streamers.
The children's dragons were creative and unique to themselves.
 It looks like chaos,
 but was very producive
 and cooperative.
Here are a few finished dragons.


I was quick to snap a picture as this little one was leaving
making her dragon puppet fly.
