Western “Ghost Festival” is celebrated on 31st of October, the counterpart of this in Chinese culture is called “Hungry Ghost Festival” or “Zhongyuan Festival.” It falls on the fifteenth day of the seventh lunar month. This festival has special sacrificial ceremony where people bring samples of food, incense, and joss paper money and place them on an offering table to appease the ghosts and ward off bad luck.
Time for Halloween Crafts!
Let us celebrate the spooky season with fun and exciting arts and crafts for children. This is also a perfect activity to improve children’s motor skills, creative thinking, and cognitive development.
To start off, we will need paper plates, colouring materials, pair of scissors, and coloured paper. Let their imagination fly. The paper plates will serve as the head of the witch, ghost, black cat, bat, or Jack-o’-lantern. Cut out the coloured paper to form the eyes, nose and mouth of their chosen Halloween character. Finally, add some finishing touches and there you have it.
