I don't know much about Chinese New Year (other than what I just looked up on Wikipedia), but today in her kindergarten class, Naiya ate sticky rice with chopsticks for snack as part of their commemoration of the occasion. Each child brought her special child adapted utensils home and my dear daughter couldn't wait to show me her new skill.
(The chopstick for kids is made using the paper sleeve wrapper of the chopsticks and a rubber band. The wrapper is rolled up and placed between the sticks. The rubber band holds it in place as shown and effectively creates a kind of "spring" that pops back to the open position when the child lets her grip slacken. It's kind of like giant tweezer.)
