Kung Hei Fat Choi!

I love Aidan to learn about other Cultures and Traditions and as Chinese New Year fell on a Sunday it gave us the perfect opportunity to some crafts, activities and of course some eating!!

Saturday night we hung lettuce outside for the Dragon to munch on his visit and he managed to leave Aidan a red and Gold pouch of coins under his pillow without even waking him! ;-)

Snake Maze

Making a Year of the Snake Mobile

Year of the Snake Mobiles
Chinese Lanterns

Chinese feast, Spring Rolls, Char Sui Pork, Cashew Chicken and Noodles, Rice, Beef & Broccoli, Prawn Crackers and Tsing Tsao beer!

Tucking in

Noodles are tricky to eat!!!


We watched both Dragon dances and Lion dances on videos on Youtube and used printables from Here:


  1. I love Chinese New Year!! looks like you had a great one and as usual, did lots of lovely things.

    I hope the year of the snake, brings you all much luck.xx

  2. What a lovely thing to do!! I have a great memory of one Chinese New Year in London when I was younger and they lifted up one of the dragons right up to the window of my mum's friends flat. I thought it was amazing!!

    1. Thanks Gina, I would love to go to Chinatown one year to see the dragons and Lions. I can't believe this was my last blog post and its almost a year ago. Could do better, New Years Resolution on the cards I think! I do so many awesome things with the Kids, I really should post them more on here.


Thank you so much for your comments, I love to read them :-)
