Chinese New Year Crafts

What are you doing?

It's that time of year again: Chinese New Year! In case you weren't aware, it's the Year of the Dog, so those crafts are especially on point right now. In my family, we are doing a few things to celebrate, including creating silly fortunes (which has nothing to do with it and everything to do with us just being weird), watching Born In China on Netflix and eating some oranges for good luck!

We'll also make some fun CNY crafts as usual. We love to make red lanterns and lucky envelopes to share for the holiday, but dragons are fun, too. My daughter made a fun printable dragon once that you can make from Red Ted Art, too. She added yarn whiskers and glitter to hers! Feel free to customize yours as well.

What are you crafting for the celebration? Share your links and photos in the chat.
