Next week I start my two week unit on the Chinese New Years (officially on January 23).  I have been planning and thinking about what I want to do this year.  Here are a few ideas I found on the web from fellow bloggers.  Do you have any good ideas?  Let me know!
I love this ideas from Kaboose!  Click here for instructions.

I do a similar project in my China unit — but this one uses yarn for the branches!  Love that idea!

I love my red lanterns!  I might use gold around the ends this year.

Me oh my!  I adore this idea – yarn noodles!  This is going to rock my housekeeping this year!  I feel a Chinese Restaurant in my near future!  From Let's Go Fly A Kite
