6 Fun Garden Themed Chinese Learning Activities for Kids

Garden themed activities are a great way to engage kids in learning Chinese in the Spring time. My student (6YO) and daughter (3YO) had a great time with these. They’re all fairly easy to set up.

If you’re looking to decrease the amount of time you’re spending preparing for activities or lessons, having a theme really helps! When I choose a theme, I know exactly what I’m looking for in terms of books and activities so I’m not trying to come up with something every day. I recommend giving it a try.

Usually the themes we go with are based a mix of: what my daughter and student are interested in, the season and what books I have available.
