I originally planned this as a Chinese New Year craft for kids but truth be told it’s just as much to do with my desire for spring to start – I am done with the cold weather! This handprint cherry tree craft is super easy to make and uses one of our favourite ways to print – Duplo!
Chinese New Year is a fun time for kids (and a great excuse to get them to try some new foods?!) so I’m really pleased to be sharing these Chinese New Year crafts for toddlers with you today. There’s loads of easy ideas including crafts, sensory play, ideas for circle time and even a Chinese New Year themed game of bingo, what activities will you do with your kids?
It’s not long now until Chinese New Year and this movable Chinese dragon paper plate craft is a great way to help excite the kids about the celebrations. Since having children we’ve celebrated Chinese New Year every year, after Christmas and New Year it feels like a long time until anything exciting and the weather is normally a bit miserable so an excuse to eat great food and make some Chinese New Year crafts has always been very popular here!
This Newspaper Chinese lantern craft is a great way to use up materials that you have lying around the house (great for a bit of thrifty crafting!) but it’s also a good way for kids to learn a new painting technique. There are lots of Chinese New Year crafts and this is a fun way to get kids excited about the holiday.
Today I’m joining in with some of my fellow bloggers in the Kid Blogger Network to share some fun Chinese New Year crafts for kids! This year we’ve already shared our Chinese Lanterns and our cupcake liner sheep for the Year of the Sheep and today I’m sharing a simple Chinese fan craft that’s super simple to set up and uses a fun way to paint without a paintbrush!
