Celebrate the New Year…Chinese Style!

While the start of the Chinese New Year begins on February 10th, there are all sorts of books, activities, and recipes you and your children can try to get into the spirit.  Since 2013 is the Year of The Snake, visit the reptile section of the zoo to get inspired.  You can take photos of the snakes on display and then draw pictures of your own in wild colors and shapes.  Read stories about snakes and make up some of your own. NickJr. has recipes for Chocolate Pumpkin Seeds, Chinese Lantern Cakes, and Candied Fruit, among many others. http://www.nickjr.com

Visit the International School in China to learn the customs and read about the holiday. http://www.istianjin.org.
