This year, I managed to find a couple Chinese New Year books from the library in the toddler section. The Fudgelet loves reading them, and he also loves learning new Cantonese phrases/songs/etc. I figured doing some crafts related to the holiday would be perfect since he is also missing Christmas activities and decorations. Initially I was going to check out a craft store and grab some pre-packaged crafts kits. Then, I looked online and found a few sites with easy crafts. After we made them, we went to the craft store to get other goodies …. and apparently they didn’t have ANY Chinese decorations anyway! Unheard of! So, it’s just as well we did it ourselves.
