Lunar New Year Activity for Kids


Writing cards and creating banners is a lovely Chinese New Year tradition.


Gold paint, Chinese symbols stencils, red construction paper and a paint brush.


Gold is a special color. Plus it is a lot of fun.


I taped the stencil down onto the paper to limit the “sliding” of the card as we painted the stencils.


Then we waited for the cards to dry. We did two different versions as you can see in the above image. I am really looking forward to giving them to the boys’ Mandarin teacher in a few weeks. The boys had fun, learned a bit of culture and worked their fine motor skills.
