Chinese New Year

Yesterday we celebrated Chinese New Year. I had received an educator kit from Panda Express that had a DVD explaining the holiday, and some worksheets and crafts. I also had some good books that had to do with China that we read. One of them was about a missionary woman in China who didn't have any money or food for breakfast and how God kept providing for her. People kept coming and bringing her food and one person even brought her $1,000. It was a neat story and a great lesson to share with the girls.
Of course we also had snacks, fortune cookies and tea.
Since it's the Year of the Rabbit, we also read a science book about Rabbits. Rylie loved this part because she got to snuggle her bunny. She was also very proud of her Chinese lantern that she made.
I love school days like this, makes learning fun!
