On Sunday afternoon, Josie and I spent some time transforming one her little houses into a Chinese New Year celebration for Kai-lan. You can find a tutorial for making these lanterns here on my blog. I just cut the paper a bit smaller than usual.CNY miniature blog post, Lee. We loved making the Chinese take-out food containers.
In case you're wondering, the miniature chopsticks are toothpicks cut to size.
We also decided to make a special snake out of an empty egg carton container.
Anytime paint is involved, it's a good craft in Josie's world.
Once the paint finally dried, my hot glue gun put our colorful "Year of the Snake" together.
Although Josie missed her special Chinese Language School festival on Saturday, our crafting time was more fun (and honestly a lot less stressful).
Happy Year of the Snake!
