I wanted to follow up our exciting trip to the Wing Yip supermarket earlier this week a list of 10 Chinese New Year crafts for kids to help children gain an understanding of different cultures. We’ve already made a few of these, and they’ve been great fun. JJ has particularly liked the paper chain dragon, and the toilet role fire crackers. I think we’ll work on the goat mask and colouring sheets today.
Here are some great craft ideas that are sure to get the kids excited about Chinese New Year, which takes place this year on 19 February. Depending on where in the world you are, this year’s animal is referred to the year of the Ram, Goat, or Sheep.
