Manchester children celebrate Chinese New Year

Date: 02 Feb 2017

Preschool children at Bright Horizons Manchester Day Nursery and Preschool have celebrated Chinese New Year by making their own themed lanterns.

After creating the lanterns, the children also took them home to show their families what they had made at the nursery. They also practised their fine motor skills by taking part in a noodle fascination trap which saw them attempt to untangle noodles with utensils.  

“The children have been learning all about Chinese New Year and the Chinese culture and traditions,” said Nursery Manager Chloe Barwick. “Their favourite part was learning all about the dragons.”
