The legend of Ne Zha (哪吒)

Learn about 果 (consequences) through the 4,000-year-old legend of Ne Zha, the 3rd Lotus Prince.

 

Location: Funan Mall, #07-21, S179097, Trehaus preschool. (Access via Lift Lobby A)

 

In this 3h workshop, we will introduce your child to the story of Ne Zha (哪吒), the divine child who wields the Universe Ring (乾坤圈), Fire-Tipped Spear (火尖枪) and Magic Sash (混天凌), and rides on Wind Fire Wheels (风火轮)!

 

Activities include:

- Comparing Ne Zha and other child figures in pop culture such as Cupid, contrasting the weapons they use, what they do, and how they fly (Chinese gods don’t have wings; they 飘/drift on clouds and sashes instead).

- Emotive retelling of Ne Zha's origin story in the style of olden-day Chinese storytellers (说书人).

- Free play with Ne Zha's Universe Ring (乾坤圈), Fire-Tipped Spear (火尖枪), Magic Sash (混天凌), and Wind Fire Wheels (风火轮)!

- Role-play Ne Zha’s misadventures, especially his disturbance of the sea (哪吒闹海) using pail of water and sea creature toys, to let the children know that Ne Zha’s actions did cause harm.

- Mock battle with props of Ne Zha's weapons, imparting the concept of power and responsibility.

- Facilitated discussion of questions, such as whether Nezha was wrong to pick the Dragon Prince’s tendons, whether the Dragon King was right to threaten to flood the town in revenge, etc.

- Understand the metaphoric meaning of Ne Zha's death, which involved him "shedding my bones to return to my father, and shedding my flesh to return to my mother" (剔骨还父,割肉还母). We will explain to the children that in the real world, however, such actions do not actually help in solving problems, and explore with them what Ne Zha could have done instead.

- Molding Ne Zha's divine rebirth from a lotus root using kids' clay, and sharing of how he turned into a new leaf.
