Kids will have the chance to make Chinese New Year themed charm bracelets with red and gold beads and dragon pendants. Plus, they can get their face painted too! Suitable for children over 5.
Red Envelope Decorating & Chinese Calligraphy
Learn how to write your name in Chinese calligraphy! Practice on authentic rice paper, and when you’ve perfected your writing, decorate a red envelope, sign your name in Chinese.
Money Tree Plant Potting
Children can decorate their ceramic pots before planting their Money tree seeds using compost disks.
Tea Blending Workshop
Make your own herbal tea bags. Choose from a range of herbs, then either take your teabag away to try at home or brew the tea there to try.
Fortune Cookie Decorating
Fun fortune cookie decorating with colourful sweet treats. You'll be able to take your cookies away in an authentic noodle box.
Based on the full moon ritual which promotes cleansing, growing & transforming the mind, we'll take the kids on a journey with the Moon Masterclass:
- Make your own wish jar (to encourage positive thinking): decorate your wish jar with glitter and all things sparkly and fill the jars with wishes.
- Move with the moon (stretch away the negative energy): enjoy low-impact kid’s yoga
- Mood meditation (time to reflect)
