Chinese New Year is also known as Lunar New Year because it follows the lunar calendar. It is one of the biggest and most anticipated holidays in Asia. The celebration lasts for about two weeks. Much like our American Thanksgiving, is a time for families to gather, share traditional foods and make memories.
Much of the traditions and activities associated with this holiday center around bringing good luck and good fortune. Everything from the traditional colors of gold and red, to the types of food they eat. Fireworks are lit to help scare off evil spirits and they help create a festive atmosphere. Instead of receiving presents, kids are given money in special red envelopes. Everything is done to help usher in a positive and productive new year!
For the littles, this educational activity is great for helping them to recognize letter patterns and consonant clusters. It also helps them to broadening their vocabularies. Word searches are a great way to reinforce good spelling, boost working memory and help teach the value of persistence. Our Chinese New Year word searches will challenge kids to find familiar and unfamiliar words, horizontally, vertically and diagonally.
For older kids, our Chinese New Year word searches will teach them about the symbols and meanings of the Chinese zodiac.
