Celebrate the Chinese New Year with Early Years Resources
As the dark winter days continue, we have been thinking about ways to lift our spirits! What better way to brighten things up than celebrating Chinese New Year; we have prepared for the occasion by stocking up on a wide variety of Chinese New Year teaching resources.
This year, the festival is on 23rd January and marks the end of the Year of the Rabbit and the start of the Year of the Dragon. Chinese New Year has many customs and traditions associated with it. It is a time for families to meet up, for reconciliation, for purchasing of gifts, food and clothing, as well as for cleaning of the house to get rid of any bad luck and take in new, good fortunes. The colour red is also very important as a symbol of happiness and joy. Children are often presented with a red envelope containing money. All of these traditions have been accounted for and are replicated accurately in our range of Chinese New Year teaching resources to ensure you can provide fun and education activities.
We have gathered together a host of resources to help you celebrate this wonderful festival with your children – from traditional costumes, lanterns, role play food and chopsticks, to display packs, downloadable resources, books and lucky red envelopes. All of this can be found within our extensive collection of Chinese New Year teaching resources.
We hope you enjoy brightening the coming January days with us – Happy Chinese New Year – Gong Xi Fa Cai!
