By  | 

TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW)-- I have one question for you, do you know what animal you are on the Chinese zodiac calendar?

Well 2014 is the "Year of the Horse" and the Kansas Children's Discovery Center marked the beginning of the Lunar New Year, which is the first day of the Chinese calendar with, kid-friendly activities.

Families had the chance to make their own zodiac animal masks and learn about the Chinese Lunar New Year.

The Chinese zodiac has a 12 year cycle of animals and interacts with the five elements, wood, meta, fire, water and earth.

2014 is the year of the wood horse.
