Chinese New Year is a great opportunity to share other cultures and broaden the horizons of your students. Especially your elementary school kids. Using personalized fortune cookies is a fun way to get the kids to interact and learn about their fellow students with Chinese heritage and the Chinese New Year is the perfect time to do this.
You can have fortune cookie messages that encourage your students to do their best, or messages that share interesting facts about China and Chinese culture. Have your students read their facts or personalized fortune cookie messages aloud and talk about what the message means to them.
Teachers are always looking for new ways to interact with their students, and this year we have had many schools order custom fortune cookies to pass out at Chinese New Year.
At Fancy Fortune Cookies we maintain a nut free facility and only deal with nut free suppliers so that we can provide you with a safe, tastey and fun product for your children and students. Our gourmet fortune cookies do contain flour and eggs however, so do be aware of those allergies. PLEASE NOTE: As of 12-01-2009 we no longer have a nut free facility. We are excited about a few new products we have added like our Gigantic M&M’s fortune cookie and our gourmet hazelnut giant fortune cookie.
