Have a discussion about Chinese New Year
- What year is it right now?
- What year were the elfins born in?
- How do people celebrate the new year?
Split into two groups to make dragons the group could get inside, with each group decorating a cardboard box head and a sheet for the body.
They then use the musical instruments to work out a rhythm, and decide which of their group will be the dragon, and which will play the instruments. They then perform this to the other group.
Circletime Discussion Points:
- How do we celebrate New Year in this country?
- Why do people celebrate New Year?
