Excitement is starting to build here in Maine for the ‘Year of the Snake’ festivities for the Lunar New Year that begins on February 10th. I have enjoyed being an active member of the Chinese & American Friendship Association of Maine (CAFAM) for years and we host an impressive event that attracts a huge crowd. These days I’m busy preparing Chinese New Year snake crafts for the activity tables for our event on February 9th.
These crafts need to be crowd-pleasers so I make sure they can be prepared in large quantities and are simple enough for young crafters on the go. I’ve designed snake puppets and other snake projects along with traditional crafts like hong bao. You are most likely busy planning your own celebrations to share with family, friends and your community. Xīn Nián Kuài Lè!
