Set up a fun sensory bin for kids to celebrate the Lunar New Year while exploring different textures and items.
In China, red symbolizes good fortune, blessings and prosperity. During the Lunar New Year, homes are usually decorated with red to bring good luck.
I set up this sensory bin for the boys last year. I was so happy I found these Chinese decorations at one of the local Chinese stores in Suriname.
Set up a Lunar New Year Sensory Bin with me:
- Chinese red envelope
- Lucky Cat hanging decorations
- Prosperity gold bar decors
- Red and yellow pipe cleaners
- Ceramic soup spoons
- Red and black bowls
- Round tray
Fill the tray with rice and arrange all the items on top.
I used normal white rice as base to accentuate the red and gold colors of the decorations.
It was a fun activity full of scooping and pouring while introducing the boys to Chinese culture since it is a part of our heritage.
