Children’s Day!

Children’s Day in Japan is May 5th. While we celebrated it on the actual date, we have been slow to post our project!

It is a day of celebration in honor of….you guessed it – CHILDREN!  In Japan, cloth carp with streamers, called Koinibori, are flown on poles outside. It is supposed to bring good luck and fortune to the children inside the home. Koi Carp represent strength, and determination and are used as a symbol for the hope that children will also become strong and brave!!

 

We made our own Koinobori. Super fun and easy to make!
