At our Chinese club, we regularly play matching games as this is an easy way to get the children recognise the words and to keep their attention. In the next lesson, we are teaching the children the auspicious greeting words to use during the Chinese New Year. This Chinese New Year Matching game is suitable for aged 7 and above.
This is another post for my Chinese New Year series and today it is about craft. Last week, we made 3D Paper Cutting Chinese New Year Spring 春 and today we cut the 旺 (wang in hanyu pinyin) Chinese character. In Singapore during Chinese New Year, you will often hear people say/shout Huat Ah (in Hokkien language) in the street, dinner party or when they want to win the lottery! It means to prosper and be wealthy. So people adapt 旺 into Chinese New Year culture. 旺 is the translation of Huat.
