Year of the Dragon {Chinese New Year}

I have always loved Chinese New Year and, no, I am nowhere close to being Chinese nor have I ever been there.  The Great Wall of China is clearly on my bucket list, and I want to this when I get there.

So back to Chinese New Year– It is January 23rd and I have great news.  It is the year of the Dragon.  I must admit I feel a little sad to learn it is the year of the rat or ox.  But the Dragon…

If this is not a holiday you typically celebrate, I do not think I will be convincing you to deck the great wall of China walls (terrible joke) but I do have some fun ideas for teaching your kids about this other culture.  What better way to learn, then to play!  Fun Chinese New Year crafts for the family:
