Celebrating Chinese New Year at BestStart Regent Kindy

04 Feb 2019


Xin Nian Kuai Le / Gong Xi Fa Cai! 

Today we celebrated the Chinese New Year and welcomed the year of the pig with some heart healthy activities. Our children learnt about the traditional Lion and Dragon dance and got them moving and recreating the sound of drums using our musical instruments. They also learnt about the story of the 12 zodiac animals which inspired them to create their own headdresses and have an impromptu animal race at the playground representing their favourite animals. What an active morning! 

It made us all hungry afterwards so we made some dumplings. Thanks to Nana Jo for coming along and helping us. We remembered what we learnt about water and decided to steam the dumplings instead of cooking them with oil. Like the big family on New Year's day, we ate our dumpling lunch together and shared the joy of having everyone around us. An active morning and a healthy lunch, we are all surely ready for the next fun activity -  Wheels Day at BestStart Regent Kindy.
