Happy New Year’s Chinese Style! This week will see the Chinese New Year celebrations begin for the Year of the Sheep. We’re looking forward to attending the celebrations that are put on by the Borough each year. Last week there were 100+ ideas linked up, and I’ve chosen to feature Chinese New Year activities.
Let me know if you’re doing anything to celebrate this month in the comments below, I’d really love to hear about them!
If you missed last week’s round-up, I featured Valentine’s Day games. Have a look through and be inspired! This resource for Moms is packed full of parenting tips, activities for children, crafts, recipes and more!
To see previous Mom’s Library round-ups, check out my Mom’s Library page. Sign up for emails to Castle View Academy and you’ll have all of this info plus much more direct to your in-box.
