Chinese New Year...1st Grade Style!


As promised, a few strategically edited pictures from Josie's 1st grade Chinese New Year party.

Didn't they do a great job on their lanterns and their paper snake?  



We celebrated with a short Chinese New Year parade down the hallway with our paper snake and lanterns.  

After the parade, bubble wrap provided classroom-friendly fireworks.

Passing out lai see (red envelopes) filled with chocolates...always a big hit!


Happy New Year!
XOXO

They look so cute and happy. I am sure they are proud to explain where they are from. They probably are asked alot of questions. I love that outfit. The idea of bubble wrap fireworks is a great idea.
