Let your children learn Chinese Hanzi characters with these tips & printouts “Chinese characters for kids”. Chinese characters are one of the most interesting parts of the Chinese language, and many kids find them interesting too. They’re not really pictures (some of the most basic ones you could describe as pictograms), but with repetition and playing they become easier to remember.
Let your child write Chinese characters in salt
Fill a low box or platter with salt (or sugar) and use it as a base for calligraphy. You can use a pen or pencil, or a butter knife to let your child write the Chinese character. Easy to erase too, just shake it! You can let them write the most basic Chinese characters such as numbers from 1 to 10, or the characters for me (我) and you (你), or if your children have a Chinese name, let them practise writing this.
