Several artists present a variety of Chinese crafts—including paper cutting, painting, and kite making—to youngsters as part of a Chinese New Year’s Celebration at the Explorium, a children’s museum in Lexington, Kentucky. Chinese New Year, the biggest celebration of the year, is also called the Spring Festival and marked by Dragon Parades. By creating a Chinese craft, young people can not only enjoy the arts, but also better understand the traditions of their Chinese counterparts. This video was produced with a primary-age audience in mind.
