Diverse events to help children better understand traditional culture


Communities at Xietang Sub-district recently carried out several activities to celebrate the Beginning of Summer, which, the 7th of the 24 Chinese Solar Terms, fell on May 5 this year. The events were designed to help the children acquire a better understanding of traditional Chinese culture and folk customs related to the day.

Chengfang Community hosted an event on May 5. Following the volunteer teacher's instruction and demonstration, the children drew pictures on boiled eggs before putting them into the nets they made and hanging them around their necks, which, according to customs, symbolizes putting up a protective net against summer diseases.

Songtao Community organized a parent-child event on the day, when the community staff expounded on related customs to the participants based on a short animated film, taught them to weave colorful ropes into egg nets and weighed the children following the tradition.

Another event took place on the same day in Songyuan Community, where the participants learnt knowledge on related proverbs and customs from a volunteer teacher, played "Egg Tapping" game and made egg nets with the volunteers' help and instruction.
