Happy New Year - China and a Party!

恭禧發財


Gong Hey Fat Choy

Today was our Chinese New Year Celebration.  We had prepped for the party by making our Snakes in school last week.  Learning about how the New Year is celebrated in China and reading our books!

We swept the floors and cleaned away last year yesterday...today was a day to celebrate!


First we had a little school...








Then our guests arrived...we played Chinese Pick up Sticks Game. We built the Great Wall of China out of LEGOS.  I had DVR'd the Disney movie, Mulan so that was playing in the background.


Kimberly brought some wonderful authentic Chinese items from her trip to China. Along with some pictures. They were amazing. All the kids sat and loved what she shared.





We ate our lunch all together while listening to this great CD!





All the children tried using their chopsticks - fun times! 

The two hours flew by! 


This week we will be celebrating the LOVE we share with our Valentine's Day Party on Thursday!

Until then - BE BLESSED!
