This is my favourite book because it covers all the mid autumn legends, each legend in about 2 pages. I also like that it introduces how other nationalities celebrate Mid Autumn! Great for children who already know about mooncakes, jade rabbits and are ready to move on to more. Also great for the Mum (ahem - me) who wants a book that she can just read 2 pages a night to introduce one legend at a time :p
This kit is packed full of activities from hands on learning about different phases of the moon, tracing some Mid Autumn well wishes (花好月圆庆中秋）to learning about how mooncakes came about & then making some craft mooncakes that can be used for so many extension games. Identify the different legends in the DIY colouring mobile after you read about them all in the story book included! Let your little one have a go at the join the dots to form a rabbit and full moon activity. Next, hone their fine motor skills with the colourful 中秋节 dot marker/ dot sticker activity sheets to introduce them the 3 chinese characters they will be seeing pretty often this Mid Autumn! Then it’s time for some action with Houyi pretend play shooting down balloon suns! Last but not the least, make your own lantern to bring out for lantern walk in Mid Autumn night!
