My daughter attends a school where 92% of the kids come from different cultures. She has friends whose parents were born in China, Romania, South America, etc. Each day she learns a new word or custom from a friend. I find this an enriching experience. She gets to visit the world at home. She doesn’t have to travel to discover new cultures!
Her best friend has Chinese origins. When it is Chinese New Year, my daughter and her friend get together and create crafts. For the upcoming Chinese New Year Celebration, they made this cute and super easy fan. They made it out of materials I had on hand. I always stock up on craft supplies from dollar stores. It is handy for those days off, play dates and rainy Sunday afternoons.
Chinese New Year Feather Fan Craft
- White paper.
- A pack of feathers
- Some Glue
- Lots of creativity
- Fold the paper in an accordion style
- Add glue on the paper
- Glue the feathers. This part is a bit difficult and little ones may need your help
Some feathers were hard to glue so I stapled them.
