Can anyone give me good ideas for a poem, craft or information about Chinese New Year?

I have posted a previous question about this but I did not get the answers I wanted.

A great way to find craft and activities about a topic (especially a holiday) is by looking at Teacher’s lesson plans.

(Just make sure you scroll past the google ads.)

I like this one because it has the fu character at the bottom.

If these crafts are too basic for you, at least the information given can give you some other ideas.

I’m a chicken! What’s your sign?

Which is the most powerful Chinese martial art?

Thanks a lot for anyone who answers.
Or, give me a wikipedia page on the Chinese martial art you think is most powerful?

Tai Chi Chuan, the Yang style, because it relies entirely on the laws of Physics, and you can not fight physics. Any movement your body makes, if the Tai Chi Chuan expert is touching you, they can use that movement against you. It is the most powerful art, because all other martial arts rely on agressive force even when defending whereas Tai Chi, relies on "passive" force, or blending with any kind of agressive movement, to throw an opponent off balance. How do you defeat a martial art, designed to use ANY move you make, in accordance to the laws of physics?

Yang Lu Chan, established himself as the greatest martial artist China had ever seen, its the whole reason the Yang style of Tai Chi has been so widely practiced, while other styles of Kung Fu nearly died out. It is not a question of me "thinking" its the most powerful; if you talk to an actual expert in Chinese martial arts, even a modern Shaolin monk, they would agree with me. Tai Chi, is the most powerful form of Kung Fu there is, because of the way the masters rely on physics, and because of the art’s emphasis on focus, a genuine master of the art, or genuine masters, are reputed to have impregnable defenses.

Hope that helps.

Peace out.

About the author of the videos:

My name is Merve, I am a Muslim, an engineer from New York, a mom, a wife and a crafter by nature. My parents introduced me to arts and crafts at a very early age. I love doing arts and crafts as a hobby but most importantly to teach my son about nature and manual skills. My parents and I traveled quite a lot, thus I was able to pick up different cultures and languages easily. My parents introduced me to arts and crafts at a very early age. I love doing arts and crafts as a hobby :).

As a child I watched many Japanese shows. These shows influenced my taste, my skills and even my choice in profession. One of these arts and crafts shows that influenced me was called ¿Can I do it? Or in Japanese, Dekirukana? (できるかな). (Their protagonists were Noppo (ノッポさん Noppo-san), played by Ei Takami, and Gonta (ゴン太くん Gonta-kun). I only watched the show from age 4-5 but it did leave quite an impression in my life as well as in the life of many other children.
