We had fun learning about the parts of a flower and reviewing how to read relevant Chinese and English words! After sorting the different parts, the kids made beautiful Flower Sensory Bottles!
Rain stick sensory bottles are a wonderful auditory, visual, and tactile learning experience for kids! They are easy and fun for kids to make on their own!
This activity is the perfect combination of nature, art, recess, and Chinese learning. We collected leaves from the park, discussed Autumn in Chinese, and traced the leaves with paint around important Chinese characters.
Rocks, sticks, and shells are great tools for writing practice at the beach! Sensory writing with beach-side treasures can be fun for kids!
This nature-inspired sensory activity marries the beauty of Chinese characters with that of fresh flowers. We decorated the character 花 with flowers as well as grass because of the 草字头 (cǎozìtóu / grass radical).
