Pre-school aged children and their caregivers are invited to join a Storyteller at the Mattatuck Museum in Waterbury on Wednesday, January 25 at 10:00 a.m. for a tale about the Chinese New Year festival. In the story, follow a family as they let off firecrackers, watch the amazing dragon dances and light their beautiful lanterns to celebrate the start of their New Year. Afterwards, toddlers will use paper, scissors and crayons to make paper lanterns.
