February 19 was the Lantern Festival, and also the first school day for many kindergartens. Students at Tianyue Kindergarten started their first lesson with hands-on activities. They learned traditional Lantern Festival customs: teachers painted a red dot on students’ foreheads, and instructed them to walk on stilts, make lanterns, guess lantern riddles, and make tangyuan.
