Get creative with your kids this Lunar New Year and create these Chinese food using recycled cardboard.
Crafting with my boys is a joy, especially when it includes recycled cardboard and coloring. Recently, we’ve been immersed in Chinese New Year crafts, and one of our cherished projects is the DIY cardboard dim sum. The entire process, from crafting to imaginative play, made for a delightful afternoon. The boys had a blast pretending to cook, sell, and even “eat” the dim sum. Our go-to coloring materials, the Chalkola chalk markers, not only offer vibrant colors but also kid-friendly features and easy cleanup, making the creative experience even more enjoyable.
