A Simple Chinese New Year Craft

The boys have been stricken with a horrid viral infection since last Tuesday. I was not spared either. Chinese New Year preparations have taken a standstill. By a stroke of ingenuity, I thought of a simple craft to keep the boys entertained, retain my rest and decorate the house for the new year.

What you will need:
▪ Straws
▪ Glue
▪ Scissors
▪ Coloured paper
▪ Marker

1. Xxm and Xmm practiced their cutting skills by snipping the straws lengthwise. It proved difficult for them because the straw was rather firm but Xxm managed it eventually. It was great seeing him exercise better hand control. Xmm needed assistance.
2. Write a “福” which meant prosperity on each coloured paper.
3. Slather on the glue and stick the straws away.
