Celebrating Chinese New Year

We celebrated Chinese New Year by learning a bit about the traditions around the event. The key focus is on family. The celebrations bring together family who often live far apart for the rest of the year. We discussed stories,language and food. We used “Noodle Sticks” and had a sniff of some powerful spices. 

Everyone went home with a fortune cookie. Some went home with some Five Spice Powder on their clothes and some had a good covering of black paint!

A lovely afternoon.
