This is another one of those projects that children of all ages can succeed with! It is super simple to set up and can be done in a whole group setting. These Chinese “scrolls” are beautiful to hang. I have used different sources for the Chinese characters – this time I chose the Chinese numbers 4, 5, and 6. Before we begin, I tell the children that half the beauty of Chinese calligraphy is the brush strokes. “Do not paint over a brush stroke! It is beautiful just as it is!” We look at examples so they understand.
What you will need: black paint, paint brushes, white construction paper cut in half length-wise, red ribbon for hanging.
