For this week, our children were immersed in the celebration of Mid-Autumn festival. It is a time of year that the moon is at its brightest, where moon-viewing party is a great way to enjoy this celebration. Lanterns and mooncakes are the most prominent aspects of this festival. Families often gather together for nibble on mooncakes, while children get to tote lanterns.
There is no other better way, than making lanterns for this festival, to get our children excited about this Chinese tradition. This also helps to raise children's awareness about the unique practices that we share in Singapore.
Children were given take-home projects to create lanterns with their families. They were encouraged to express their creativity in the making of their lanterns. Let us take a look at some of their creation.
They had a show-and-tell session to showcase their lanterns. They talked about the different sizes and colours of their lanterns.
The children had a friendly competition to see who has the most well-liked lantern among their peers.
Upon completion, the children's lanterns were displayed across their schools. Children were proud to share about their lanterns with peers.
On behalf of our Ichiban family, we would like to wish you and your family a happy Mid-Autumn Festival! 祝您在中秋佳节，美满快乐！
