Chinese Lantern Activity 

 

Directions:  

 

1st - Use the websites below to find words written in traditional

 

Chinese.  These words can include your name, characteristics about you (caring, strong, etc...) or words that represent things you like or like to do.  

 

 

 

2nd - Choose a colored piece of construction paper and use a pencil to sketch out the words.  Later, go over the words in pen or marker.  Try to cover the entire page, but leave a 1 inch margin around all sides.  It looks best if you do 2 rows of words.  Depending on how large you make the words, you may end up with only 1 or 2...or many!

 

 

 

Websites:  (Hint: You may need to look up words like basketball seperately!)
