Kids love to watch Koi. As a child, I recall my grandmother's backyard pond in Sydney had tons of them. I loved to feed them. Koi are symbolic in both Japanese and Chinese culture. In China, seven golden Koi represents good luck. Sometimes Chinese restaurants have fish pools featuring koi. This is was taken at a Chinese Restaurant in Norway (yes, you read correctly).
This craft is an easy one and the project idea comes from the ever wonderful Toymaker. It is a nice craft for recycling Christmas gift wrap.
P.S. This week, Canada Post releases its annual CNY stamp celebrating the year of the rabbit. As I have posted before, our family collects these stamps. They also make a nice gift for someone who is having a baby in the coming year.
