She will likely incorporate in her classroom. Kids love firecrackers (although these ones are pretend).
To make the firecrackers she combined two different tutorials found on Kaboose and Activity Village. Basically, the children decorate paper tubes which have been covered with red construction paper. Traditional colours such as red and gold have a great look.
If you are working on lesson plan, she recommends combining this craft with this book John Zucker's, "Lanterns and Firecrackers: A Chinese New Year Story."

I think the project turned out so well. She found my nephew's vest at the Goodwill. That is where I usually find most of my girls' Chinese (and other international) costumes as well. They generally wash well, but I always recommend separately as the red and pinks tend to run.
I hope you are enjoying the weekend,
