It’s Chinese New Year on Friday and there are a wealth of fabulous craft ideas to try with your little ones. Perfect for decorating for a party or just to keep the children amused on a rainy day this half term.
Koi carp have long been a symbol of good fortune and good luck in China. We love this loo roll and cork craft from Art Camp.
How pretty is this red and gold glitter lantern? A bit more involved than the usual, but really effective. Could also be translated in different colours or patterns for birthday parties. Via The Spruce.
This simple dragon make is great for younger children. You just need a paper plate, egg box, paint, card, googly eyes and glue. Via Twinkl.
Everyone loves fortune cookies and these paper ones are so easy to make. Just don’t forget to pop your message in. Via Unsophisticook.
2018 is the Year of the Dog, so we had to include a canine craft. Try your hand at this cute dog bookmark from Homemade City.
Happy Chinese New Year!
