Chinese New Year is a celebration that goes on for fifteen days! We celebrated by hosting a kids’ culture party!
For our craft, we made a simple red lantern craft made out of craft foam with a chenille stem handle that was stapled onto it. Each child made their own.
As a parting gift, I gave each child a Chinese New Year red envelope with 4 quarters inside. Can you imagine the excitement on the children’s faces? You’d think I was giving them $100 dollars! It is a tradition in Chinese culture to gift a red color envelope that symbolizes good luck and is supposed to ward off evil spirits.
