Chinese Week (And ‘The Story Of Ping’)

This last week we’ve been celebrating Chinese New Year.

With dragons…

And Chinese food…

Of many sorts…

These fortune cookies were super fun to make (via the Crafty Crow).

(Alfie got “You will find money” – Leon and he are still looking…!)

We’ve been discovering our Chinese signs…

And making ‘Chinese good luck’ play dough...

(via the Crafty Crow)

And for some people, ‘The Story Of Ping’ (Marjorie Flack & Kurt Wiese)…

…has given us an insight in to China.

We’ve been catching  fish from our houseboat on the Yangtze River…

…while snacking on green tea and rice cakes…

And of course, our rising little artist couldn’t go a day without creating…

….this time, his own interpretation of ‘Ping’….

🙂

  1. What great ways to bring awareness and appreciation for world cultures to your children. The dragons – OMG too cute! And what would we ever do without Crafty Crow?

    I don’t suppose you have any leftovers from dinner you would like to share?
