Chinese New Year FUN!

Last night was our Chinese New Year Girl Scout Celebration. We made 2 crafts and the girls had a GREAT time.

The first thing we made was Spring banners. I taught the girls the Chinese character for Spring. They outlined their character with glue and then decorated with gold glitter. They turned out well!
We also made Dragon Marionette Puppets. I found the directions for this here. This is quite an involved craft, but the girls did a good job. I would strongly suggest using some thicker string that is single ply.
All this dragon fun leads to another dragon bento.
1/24: Dumpling Dragon- Dragon made out of 3 dumplings (edible marker & candy eyes), blueberries, peas
