In preparation for all the fun crafts, activities and performances we have planned for the Lunar New Year Festival, one of our favorites will be for the kids (and the adults of course) to decorate a large paper-mache rabbit since this is the year of the Rabbit. We turned to our favorite party store in Pasadena – Vanny’s, to construct for us a life size rabbit-shaped piñata. They had previously done the same for our Ganesha festival with a wonderful Ganesha that the kids decorated with flowers, beads and paint. Below is a before all-cardboard image of our Rabbit, and an after image where we spray painted him in gold. Notice the little while bunny tail left to be decorated by the kids with little cotton balls!
