Gung Hay Fat Choy! Chinese New Year is a spring festival that follows the Chinese lunar calendar and traditionally falls between mid-January and mid-February each year. The celebrations usually last for two weeks and represent a fresh start, rejuvenating family love and hoping for happiness in the year to come.
The 3D Paper Snowflake program served three purposes: teaching participants a fun way to make decorative three-dimensional paper snowflakes, offering area teens the chance to earn community service credit if they donated their snowflakes to help decorate local children's hospitals, and creating a community outreach opportunity.
I love the holidays, so I always look forward to planning many different holiday programs just for teens. This year, I decided to create a program where teens can create holiday crafts to give to friends and family. My plan is to have several stations where they can create holiday cards, a sweet treat, ornaments and a peppermint candy bowl. I also really want to have a gift-wrapping station so they can wrap all of their presents, as well as a tasty refreshment center. I found an awesome recipe for hot cocoa and holiday frosted brownies for the refreshment center.
