We will make and eat pizza and some sort of pudding together. The littlest ones will enjoy the stretchy dough and the sprinkling of ingredients, the bigger ones can get involved with chopping and measuring. Everyone can enjoy eating.

Chinese New Year Celebrations

Tue, 24/02/2015 - 10:30am - 2:30pm
Marquis Hall, Bangor
Last Year's Dragon Parade

The Chinese New Year falls on the 19th February 2015 and will be the year of the sheep. This has become an annual celebration for the co-op with Chinese calligraphy and painting, learning some simple language such as the numbers, geography, Chinese crafts, making Chinese food to share for lunch and of course the amazing Dragon parade. 
If you can make a dragon beforehand or liaise with another family to make one in collaboration that would be brilliant.


a parent was in touch to ask if they could come to this event and we're unable to respond (the email gets bounced back), so I'm putting a quick note here in the hope they will see it- please do come along!
