Chinese New Year is full of tradition and beauty. There are many ways to incorporate learning into the Chinese New Year celebration and this is such a fun topic to teach about!! I prepared a lot of fun activities for our Chinese New Year theme last month.
I started the themed activities with my son by reading books and looking at a world map to identify Asia and then China. The play area was decorated with some decorations/crafts made by my son and I.
I created Chinese New Year activity trays for him to explore.
It was also a great opportunity to teach children about culture through arts & crafts.
I dressed him in Samfu (a traditional outfit worn by Chinese men) for the Chinese New Year celebration at his school.
Try out those themed activities mommies.. It is fun way to introduce your kids to different culture without having to fly across the ocean to China…!
