Chinese New Year

The Year of the Tiger

Chinese New Year

In celebration of Chinese New Year, each of our nurseries planned an array of activities to ensure the children engaged in a variety of experiences where they learned all about the Chinese culture and what this celebration means. We made Chinese lanterns, practiced our fine motor skills using chopsticks, learned some basic Chinese words, explored Chinese food by food tasting and explored lots more fun and messy activities.

Red envelopes
It's a tradition in Chinese culture to give a gift of a bright red envelope containing money symbolising luck and good wishes for the year ahead.
Year of the tiger
