Preparation for Activity

Description of Activity

A lunar holiday, Chinese New Year usually falls in February or March, but the planning for its celebration - including making decorations or practicing dancing a Lion Dance or Dragon Dance - takes place throughout the year. You may wish to invite a visitor to present about their own Chinese New Year customs, or arrange for the children to attend a Chinese cultural celebration if one takes place near you.
