The story of Chinese New Year is as special as the the festival itself.

Chinese New Year (Spring Festival) is the oldest traditional festival in China, but a few people concern the origin and story behind the holiday. Many existing customs and activities of the festival actually can be traced back to a popular story of the Monster Nian, which helps to explain why and how the festival is celebrated.

"It doesn't matter if you have inherited Chinese culture. Enjoy the moment with your friends and family by having a feast at your local restaurant and watch the traditional dance on the awakening of the dragon. It's spectacular to watch!"

February kits contain up to four Creative activities each for 5+ and 8+ age groups. For younger kids - DIY Lemon Clock, T-Rex Buzz Wire, DIY Racing Car and Animal Pom-Poms. For Older Kids - DIY Crazy Robot, String Art, 3D Jigsaw Puzzle with LED and Paint & Patch T-shirt Badges. Order yours today!

Hope the rising sun will bring with it bundles of joy, happiness and luck. 🐉

Happy Chinese New Year
