Our library hosted a Chinese New Year Celebration!
We made red paper lanterns
by folding a piece of paper in half
and making cuts along the folded side
careful not to reach the top
Open the paper
and staple the top and bottom together
then fashion a strip for the handle
Each child was given a customary red envelope
containing 1 Chinese Dollar or a "Yuan"
(Kyle asked if it could be used at the dollar tree store :o)and we watched an array of traditional as well as contemporary Chinese dances
the costumes were so colorful and fun!Maya checking out the theatre lighting
