Suggested Ages:


Learn about Qing Ming, a day for remembering the past when families go to the grave sites of their ancestors and honor them by hosting elaborate picnics.  Mold clay people, tea eggs, drum sticks, oranges, almond cookies, and more to create a Qing Ming picnic scene. Then celebrate the new beginnings of spring by making pinwheels and other seasonal paper crafts.
