NIGHT 354 – THE STORY OF WARDAN THR BUTCHER, THE WOMAN AND THE BEAR

kou and 嘴巴zui ba mouth 👄 with lipstick and then kisses

口kou is one of the easiest Chinese characters and the one I’d also teach first to adults as it seems less boring than the standard 一 , yi, one. (He managed the former all by himself and I helped with the latter of course, naming the strokes to aid memory)

The idea is that if there is an art way we can make the characters then we do that first…lipstick 💄 is an art material (bit like oil pastels actually) plus this one dried up after years of non-use…because those days are over 😂
