Mercury Cubs learn about Chinese New Year

Tonight Mercury Cubs learnt that Chinese New Year starts on 31st January and it will be the year of the horse. They all found out which animal they are in the Chinese zodiac and took part in a chopstick and malteser relay. They heard the story of how the animals were chosen that make up the 12 signs of the Chinese zodiac - every time a particular animal was mentioned they had to run up and down the ladders of legs! Finally they made pictures of dragons which is part of the Essex Challenge 2014 and took home a fortune cookie.
