Gong hei fat choi! Busy Things hosts a range of Chinese New Year activities for kids that are ideal for celebrating China's most important festival in your classroom. Children can create a fabulous firework display, design and colour dragons and lions, and learn all about the Chinese zodiac.
Chinese New Year celebrations last for 15 days. Fireworks are used to welcome in the new year and frighten evil away. Children can experiment with our paint tools to create their own fabulous Chinese firework display!
Chinese lanterns are made of paper or silk with a candle inside. They are nearly always red to represent joy and good fortune. Children can choose from three different lanterns and use our Busy Things paint tools to decorate their design.
