Sendai tanabata festival JAPAN "Tanabata", also known as the "star festival", takes place on the 7th day of the 7th month of the year, when, according to a Chinese legend, the two stars Altair and Vega, which are usually separated from each other by the milky way, are able to meet.
Tanabata festival inspired installation by Ebony Bizys - But as soon as I saw this I thought: ooo sensory box instead of sensory tub! My kids are too long legged and crazy for sensory tubs but a box...something huge they could run through and that we could tie and endless amount of things to, over and in... Yes! Gotta build it.
July, 7 : Tanabata (七夕, meaning “Evening of the seventh") is a Japanese star festival. People generally celebrate this day by writing wishes, sometimes in the form of poetry, on tanzaku (短冊), small pieces of paper, and hanging them on bamboo. The bamboo and decorations are often set afloat on a river or burned after the festival, around midnight or on the next day.
