You know what might be fun? I'm thinking back 21 years ago when my daughter studied geography in kindergarten. The teacher had the kids sit in chairs she had lined up to be like an airplane. They pretended they were flying to the country, and a little snack was handed out while the teacher gave a brief talk about china. Might be a calming way to start the party as I know kids are excited when they first arrive. As they single file off the plane to head to the craft table, you might ask them if they have anything to declare. You could probably get some really cute answers.

Maybe I'm just thinking to much into this, but I used to enjoy doing my girls parties.  My oldest was born Dec 20th, so one year we made gingerbread houses out of graham crackers.

What a great idea for a game!

bopper:
I think origami is too complicated for that age...unless you have one adult for every two kids.

Could you do some kind of conga line that would be like a chinese dragon?
For example: Catch the Dragon's Tail
In this game, players line up in one line. The first person is the head of the dragon and the last person is the tail. Everyone puts their hands on the shoulders of the person in front of them. The dragon's head tries to catch the dragon's tail without causing anyone to remove their hands. If the tail is caught, that person is out. As the game progresses, the dragon's body gets shorter and shorter. The last player left is the winner.

Oh my goodness!  That is such a cute idea. :)  I love it.  And I bet the kids really enjoyed it as well.

MommyPenguin:
The party was today, and it went fairly well!  I ran into one hitch last night... I tried the Chinese lantern craft, and it turned out to be something that needed hot glue.  So I made them instead and used them as a decoration.  But I really should have had another activity.  The kids ended up playing with some toys for part of the party instead, which worked out fine in the end.

Cute little pandas that my mom sent for the goody bags:
