Kawaii means cuteness in Japanese culture (literally, adorable, precious, lovable, or innocent). So, in honor of that today we are going to make a Hair Clip that is totally Kawaii. The craft is an easy one, but the outcome is a hair clip that you will love to wear. Made from a piece of leather, a hair clip and a couple of other materials you’ll have this craft put together in no time. So, grab the materials needed and let’s get started.
Chinese New Year falls on January 23rd this Year. And, in honor of Chinese New Year I put together a list of crafts just about the Chinese New Year.

Chinese New Year is just a few days away…. It falls on January 23, 2012. Chinese New Year is the most important of the traditional Chinese Holidays.

So, I thought this craft would be a perfect craft for Chinese New Year. You only need a few materials for this craft, so grab them and let’s get started.

What ever the reason may be your kids are sure to love making this craft. So, grab the materials needed and let’s get started.
I noticed that there are 2 holidays / events coming up – The Chinese New Year and The 100th Day of School. I think that the Chinese Abacus could be a craft to tie both of these 2 celebrations together. The Abacus uses 100 beads and was created by the Chinese people who called this calculating instrument a Swan-Pan.
