HAPPY CHINESE NEW YEAR!! As I mentioned in my Chinese New Year Paper Lantern Kid Craft and Family Potsticker Celebration a few days ago, I spent a semester living in China teaching English when I was in college, and I arrived in February, during the Chinese New Year celebrations, so I have a soft spot in my heart for this holiday. I had so much fun making lanterns and eating potstickers with my kids to prep that post that I decided to round up more fun Chinese New Year activities for kids from around the web. I hope they inspire you to throw a little family Chinese New Year party of your own!
