May 5th is a Children’s Day in Japan. This year, at Mili’s home school and playgroup, Mili made a Koinobori (above) and I helped her make a kabuto (the traditional Japanese military helmet) with a newspaper (below). I used to make these when I was little at school, it’s really awesome to get to do this all over again with my own kid now! Happy Children’s Day, Mili!
(She didn’t like wearing the kabuto… haha)
