Vernal equinox: Time for some traditional “egg-citement”


On March 21, volunteers from the Jiangsu University of Science and Technology visited the Jiangbin Kindergarten in Zhenjiang City and celebrated together with the pupils the vernal equinox, one of the twenty-four solar terms observed in China. They had an afternoon of traditional games and fun together, trying to stand an egg up on one end and decorating eggs. The children also listened to stories on the theme of the beginning of spring.
