Activity details. Cultural education on the big screen

Taoshu & Friends’ Mid-autumn Festival (23 Minutes):
A cartoon about a young boy, Tao Shu, and his little sister, Ling Ling, who are about to celebrate the Mid-Autumn Festival with their family. You get a look into the tea drinking tradition, the types of moon cakes, how moon cakes are made, and how to make a lantern!

This is completely in Mandarin Chinese, with no subtitles, but still interesting to watch! Children will enjoy most of it.

Mooncakes (13 minutes):
Short animated film about a boy sending off a wish for Mooncakes and we see what happens and why the Chinese moon rabbits are so busy! An amusing, imaginary, near-silent film: there is no language spoken but there are sound effects and such.

Lantern Walk:
Make a simple lantern beforehand, or use one of the Chinese lanterns to go for a little wander in the dark. Children going for lantern walks by the full moon are part of a Mooncake - Mid-Autumn Festival’s usual activities.
