Chinese New Year Arts & Crafts for Kids


Chinese New Year has always been a traditional time for family sharing and caring, it gives us time to build connections and be engaged in some family fun by making your own Chinese New Year decorations. 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! If you don’t want to go out and enjoy the celebrations and events which are sometimes a bit overwhelming for small kids, think lots of banging drums and fire crackers! A nice way to celebrate could be to order some ‘Dim Sum’ or New Year treats & goodies or even try to make your own longevity noodles and get the kids to decorate with some fun DIY Chinese New Year arts and crafts or brave the streets of China Town for their annual displays of themed decorations and everything else you could possibly need for Chinese New Year.

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!
