What a week we had celebrating the Lunar New Year over the February break! Each day children tasted dumplings, cookies, and green tea, created a Lunar New Year themed craft, practiced writing Chinese characters, and had their name written in Chinese. Throughout the week children created dragon puppets, clay pottery, and Beijing Opera Masks in our workshop room. On the exhibit floor, children created and decorated paper lanterns in the art room and made wishes on our Lam Tsuen wishing tree.
Our busiest day was Friday, when we welcomed The Red Dragon School of Martial Arts to perform the Lion Dance in the gym. Children were encouraged to participate in the dance by taking turns trying on a small size lion head and moving around with the performers. Thank you to our generous friends at M&T Bank for sponsoring our activities during this family fun week!
