Now that we are back stateside for the time being, the kids have enjoyed surprising me with the treasures they find outdoors. Little scavengers they are—I love it. They are usually pleasant surprises like leaves and flowers, with the occasional item that causes me to say, “umm that’s nice, but let’s put that back outside”.
Today’s surprise was especially nice though—they found that the tomato vine in the back yard has yielded a lot of fruit! What?!!?? When was the last time we even watered back there?
The little tomatoes were so cute that I was inspired to create a garden themed Chinese number recognition and counting activity for the 3 and 5 year olds.
Red envelopes, longevity foods, lanterns, firecrackers, festivals, boisterous parades, and lion dances! This year the Lunar New Year lands on Tuesday, February 5th (although, different countries in Asia may celebrate the days a little differently). It’s basically a celebration of lights, sound, the color red, and food! Several prominent venues in DFW are celebrating the Lunar New Year with festivals honoring the holiday.
