Xin Nian Hao! Happy Chinese New Year! We had a wonderful celebration for the Chinese Year of the Snake. We learned why fire works and the color red are so important in Chinese New Year celebrations. We made our own indoor fire work show by stomping on large bubble wrap and setting off confetti poppers. We also had a mini snake-dragon parade around the lobby. We made red snake paper lanterns and we had an honorary guest, Bella the Indigo Snake; so we could appreciate these fabulous creatures up close. It was nature and culture discovery, all in one.
