Chinese New Year begins February 10th and we're starting to collect activities and crafts that we can introduce to Josie's classmates regarding this special holiday...the Year of the Snake!Panda Express is offering a FREE Chinese New Year Kit. We've used this service last three years for Josie's preschool and Kindergarten and have been very pleased.
The FREE kit is geared for second through fourth grades (I adapted some of it for Josie's grade level) and includes:
- Panda Express’ Year of the Snake Video
- Year of the Snake Fact Sheet
- Jade Emperor’s Interactive Game and Activity Sheet
- Chinese New Year Decoration Art Activity
- Lai See Activity Sheet
- Bookmarks (with a Free Kids Meal with purchase coupon attached)
See here for details from Panda Express.
I recently placed an order with Oriental Trading company for mini red envelopes that I'm going to fill with Chinese chocolate gold coins. They were a big hit last year in Kindergarten.
Over the next few weeks, I'm hoping to share a few Chinese New Year crafts.
