What a fun Lunar New Year Festival this past weekend. Thank you again to the Peaboy Essex Museum for having me. Our Jianzi Workshop was so much fun. We had over 30 kids and families participate, unplugging from media to kicking, leaping, and stalling their jianzi. An easy toy to make with so many health benefits. It was really nice to connect with so many diverse people and to bring back fun memories of hacky sack, mostly a fun past time lost to the days of our high school years.
We ended our adventure with “Martin the Pretty Dragon” as dubbed by the PEM Staff, as I lead the dragon through the atrium for all to enjoy. 🙂 All the scales of the dragon were created by the many children who visited PEM. The children played little drums and joined the parade as well.
And thank you Mimi and Auntie Michelle for enjoying the festivities and helping Eve and Alice throughout the day.
