We made Chinese New Year Drum! This coming 8th February 2016, we are welcoming the Year of the Monkey and saying goodbye to Year of the Goat/Sheep. The Monkey is the ninth animal out of 12 in the Chinese zodiac. Take a look at my previous post if you want to familiarise yourself with the Chinese zodiac, and check out how we used simple crafts to teach children about it.
As this coming year is the Year of the Monkey (猴), we are learning how to write “monkey” in Chinese at home. Also not forgetting learning a couple more Chinese New Year themed words like 福 (Happiness), 吉 (Lucky) and 春 (Spring).
