Chinese Going To School Song 上学歌 / 上學歌 Craft stick puzzle

A few years ago, I made a simple craft stick puzzle for my daughter to learn 上学歌 / 上學歌 Going to School song lyrics in Chinese! This is completely optional of course, but it was a fun and easy activity that my daughter enjoyed!

Since I’m not fluent, the longest part was looking up how to write all of the Chinese characters. However, writing various hands-on Chinese activities for my daughter has helped me memorize Chinese characters!

I drew pictures with a Sharpie, and it took less than 30 minutes total to prepare.

To complete the puzzle, you can use either the song lyrics or drawing as the guide.

Younger children may need a “control” to help them complete the puzzle. You can easily create this buy taking a photo of the completed puzzle and printing it out!
