The 2020 Chinese New Year—the year of the rat, the first sign in the Chinese zodiac—begins January 25 and lasts for 15 days. At this Chinese New Year Decorations Making Party, children and their families and caregivers can make some traditional New Year’s decorations that symbolize happiness and good fortune. Participants will have the opportunity to create red lanterns, red pockets, and paper crafts, and they can then decorate their homes in celebration of the Lunar New Year.
