Chinese New Year - Take One

This year the Lunar New Year fell on February 14.

Abby has been studying different countries in her Social Studies book. It happened that her study of China coincided with the new year. I volunteered to come to her class and talk about China and the customs, etc. We brought things that we bought in China, books about CNY, and even a DVD that teaches Mandarin Chinese.

We made a craft of a paper lantern.
Boys LOVE to do crafts!
Sarah got to come and join in on the fun.
Abby's friend, Megan, tried on the costume we brought.
At lunch, we ordered in Chinese food: noodles, dumplings and fried rice. The kids tried everything and even ate with chopsticks.
Slurping noodles
A great class memory was made.
