Kai Lan Party Ideas For Kids
Ni Hao Kai Lan party ideas help you plan a great kids birthday party for the Nick Jr. fan in your house. Ni Hao, Kai Lan, is a TV Show from Nick Jr and preschooler children love it. The star of the show is Kai Lan and the words Ni Hao translate from the Mandarin Chinese language into "Hello" in English. Kai Lan Chow is proud of her Mandarin Chinese heritage and she shares this ancient culture with us as we watch her show. Kai Lan stars in the show with several of her animal friends
Kai Lan talks to her friends in both the English language and the Mandarin Chinese language. The children who watch her show will learn these words...she is similar in that way to Dora The Explorer, Go Diego Go and Handy Manny...the other bi-lingual characters from Nick TV shows.

Chinese Party Food Ideas For Your Kai-Lan Party Ideas
Party food for your Kai lan party ideas are really easy. Get some Chinese take out food. Steamed rice, vegetables, beef on a stick, an egg roll and some fortune cookies are the perfect party food menu. Take your plain fortune cookies and dip part of them in melted chocolate for a tasty treat that is easy to make at home. To make the chocolate dipped fortune cookies look really pretty, roll them in some candy jimmies or sprinkles after you dip them in the chocolate. Sounds delicious and it goes perfectly with the rest of your Kai-lan party ideas.

Kai Lan Party Game Ideas
Use one of the Dragon Pinatas as a party game. Make sure your dragon is a pull string pinata and if not, get the pull string conversion kit. I found this beautiful red dragon pinata at Celebrate Express...under How to Train Your Dragon party ideas. I just loved it and thought it would co-ordinate perfectly with the Kai-Lan party decoration colors. And a dragon fits in just right with the Kai Lan party ideas, since the dragon is a
It is not a pull string pinata so check out the pull string conversion kit. This will ensure a fun and a safe kids pinata game. I hate to see kids swinging a stick around...it never fails to make me a nervous wreck. There never seems to be enough of a safety zone when you have little kids running around. Then of course, there are other party game ideas too. Kai-Lan Says, Pin the Tail on the Dragon are just a few. Party crafts and activities are perfect for a Ni Hao Kai-lan party because there are so many good ideas.
Get a CD of Chinese music and play some musical party games. Freeze Dance or Musical Chairs always go over big at a preschoolers party.
Charades...Kai-Lan style...of course, the children cannot speak but they can still try to imitate Kai-Lan's friends and have the other players guess who their character is. Here is a list of the characters you can use the characters from the TV show...here I will list them again for you.
- Mr. Sun
I added Mr. Sun and The Ants to give your guests more choices for their Charades.
The Chop Stick Relay Game...let the kids form two teams. Put two chairs in front of the room. Have one team line up single file in front of one chair. On the chair place a pair of chop sticks, a bowl of cotton balls and a bucket.
The team who has the most cotton balls in their bucket at the end of the game is the winner. Blow a whistle to start the game...let each child have 20 or 30 seconds to try and put as many of the cotton balls into the bucket...the trick is, they have to use the chop sticks to move the cotton balls from the bowl to the bucket. When all the players have taken a turn, count up the cotton balls and see who wins...unless of course, you have a tie. Then everyone has to get a prize!
