Children's Day in Korea

Will you be celebrating Children's Day next month? Children's Day, a national holiday in Korea, is celebrated on May 5. Children's Day is like Christmas over there, as children are given gifts and treated to a day of fun to places like amusement parks, zoos, museums, festivals and the like . The day was originally created by Children's author, Pang Jeong Hwan, as a way to honor children as he believed they are the future of the nation.

If you are planning to celebrate this holiday in the states, above are some picnic ideas for creating a cute dosirak for your child! These are creations we found on the web by creative Koreans!
