Hello! This blog is where I ramble about motherhood and my ventures into scrapbooking, crafting and photography. We homeschool, and enjoy teaching our boys about God and dabbling with art. :) Thanks for visiting, do stay awhile, and I would love to hear from you! :)

Thinking Thursdays: I spy, CNY!

Recently, our bible study group mate sent us a bunch of yummies for Chinese New Year, and those were quickly finished. Mainly by me (oops), and now we don't have any goodies for Chinese New Year itself! However, its is no biggie, since its going to be a really quiet CNY over here. 

Anyway, we were left with this plastic container, and I decided to do an "I Spy" jar for Junior J (we did those filled with rice previously in this post). 


I realized that we have quite a few photographs (from the blog) on Chinese New Year, so I compiled some to represent some of the common practices for CNY (you can get the printable here!):


Then I topped the jar with random fillers like ribbons, confetti, bits of cut up red paper:


And now Junior J has his own "I, Spy, CNY!" jar...


... that even has him in it!


Here are the photos, which you can print and use in your own CNY jar. Perhaps it might keep the kids busy during the long bus/car/train rides when they are out visiting!
Photos of the dragon and the lion from Wikipedia. All other photos were obtained from this blog.

Happy Chinese New Year in advance, and we'll be back next week, hopefully with a Valentine's day craft to share!
