Making Chinese drums are a great tool to teach kids about Lunar New Year.
Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) February 24, 2013
Before making the craft, get out a map and show the kids where Asia and China are located. Also, get out books to show important landmarks such as the Chinese Wall and show them pictures of Chinese New Year celebrations.
After the kids are a bit familiar with the culture, gather the materials for the craft. The red and gold materials will resemble Chinese decorations.
Materials to make the cute Chinese drum are paper plates, red ribbon, craft sticks, Chinese character stencils, glue and markers. Assemble the materials according to the instructions provided on Kids Activities Blog. Let the kids have fun decorating the drum with Chinese characters.
