A Story by One of Our Daily Quillers

Look at what we did this week!

This week our Tweeners and Kid's Corner groups celebrated the Asian New Year.  They learned some of the traditions in celebrating the new year while making paper lanterns.  The Houston Chinese Consulate also very generously donated fans, keychains, posters, and books to give away.  Everyone had a wonderful time.

Next week on Monday and Wednesday we are going to make ducks out of pipe cleaners.  All kids and tweens from grade school on up are welcome!
