Chinese New Year has always been a traditional time for family sharing and caring and this year more than ever it gives us time to build connections and possibly be engaged in at-home family fun, more than before. Chinese New year is also a great opportunity to introduce your kids to China as a country, its food, history, the geography, the home of the Panda bear and more! As the larger Chinese New Year celebrations in Bangkok have now officially been cancelled, a nice way to celebrate could be to order some Dim sum, make your own longevity noodles and get the kids to decorate with some fun DIY Chinese New Year arts and crafts.
We’ve found some great ideas how you can decorate for Chinese New Year without even having to leave the house and a bonus is, they will keep the kids occupied for hours! Check out our top 10.

Tiger Magazine Mosaic
Wole Soyinka, Nigerian author, and Nobel laureate said, “A tiger does not shout its tigritude, it acts“. It’s hard to think of a more fitting way to describe this majestic creature, who’s content and confident enough to relegate the title of King of the Jungle to another cat!
Maybe that’s the reason tigers have an air of mystery and grandeur that other animals don’t have. You always hear stories of rich people or royals keeping tigers to show off their luxurious lifestyle. In fact, it is one of the animals of the Chinese Zodiac – the year 2022 is actually the year of the Tiger. How to create Magazine Mosac click HERE
