........Welcome back and welcome to our new starters................


Today's creative activities are all linked to the animals from

The Chinese New Year story.


Depending on what you have to hand in your home you may need to make a few adjustments to the activity.

We would much rather you adapt an activity than make additional journeys outside your home.

You may want to have a go at all, or some of these activities or you may have some good ideas of your own.


Turn your hand into another of the animals from The Chinese New Year Story

Turn some recycling into one of the zodiac animals


Pretend to be one of the animals 

Can your grown-up guess who you are?




Draw/ paint or collage a picture of one of the animals from the story.






Why not make a sock puppet snake



Have you got any playdough?

Why not try to make some of the animals



Make a snake threading beads or pasta onto, or roll a playdough snake... how long can you make yours?
