Lesson Description

What’s a better way to celebrate children than Children’s day?! Let’s celebrate the day in Japanese style, by creating some Koinobori!

In this class, your child will learn how to create koinobori. The instructor will begin by providing them with a brief history of Koinobori. They will learn how to carefully cut small squares of paper into circles. Then, they will be taught how to create fish scales using paper circles. They will practise sticking the paper circles carefully, using glue. They will complete their koinobori by sticking the googly eyes on it!
