I saw a cute idea on a new friends blog, ObSUESSed about celebrating Chinese New Year. The kids and I needed something fun to do tonight so this was perfect. A little culture, a little learning, a little together time, a lot of fun.
Luckily I had all the supply's on hand so it was easy to get started.
I found my Chinese characters and the kids cut them out. Then they all chose their own pictures/words. Mine was home and strength.
I wish we had card stock, the drum beats would have been louder but it still works decently with just normal paper and it was still a lot of fun to do!
Obviously you can embellish this craft with anything else. I think little jingle bells would be fun (and louder), or even coloring the squares, My kids had a good time spinning them to make them clap.
