Gong hei fat choy!!
The children at Holly Bank have enjoyed celebrating Chinese New Year at their latest Stay and Play. Parents shared in the fun and read books about Chinese culture and then explored a variety of Chinese inspired activities. They practised using chopsticks to pick up noodles. They used an abundance of the lucky colour red to paint with and made patterns with red playdough.
The children were also introduced to Chinese characters and used black paint to copy them. The children also enjoyed tasting different fruit such as physalis, lychees, star fruit and pomegranates.
