Making arts and crafts to mark international celebrations and festivals is great fun for kids Ė we have all the materials they need to do this in style.
Chinese New Year is one such occasion - a colourful vibrant time which lends itself so well to exciting artistic activity. The Chinese are renowned for their creativity and children love to try and emulate the wonderful colours and craft you see in their New Year street celebrations.
Chinese Dragons, of course, feature heavily in our festivals arts and craft. Their scary faces, gorgeous scales and long tails look great in classroom displays. Lanterns, fans and masks are also great resources for teachers, childminders and families with young children looking to inspire budding artists.
Making art and craft to coincide with international festivals is a super way of learning about other cultures while making things which kids can look back at with pride in years to come.
