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!

With Chinese New Year on the way I thought it might be good to share some easy sheep crafts that kids can make so that they can all help join in with the fun, it’s the year of the sheep this year after all! Then I thought, you know what? I’m freezing today, totally freezing and totally over winter so sharing these sheep crafts is helping me looking forward to spring too! Either way, if you’re after some simple craft ideas for spring or for New Year hopefully they’ll be something in here to inspire you.

We had so much fun today making this Chinese lantern craft that I had to write it up straight away! With Chinese New Year on the way I thought this would be a good way to teach my son a bit about other cultures and he was really intrigued by it, especially as I told him it was an excuse for us to eat Chinese food! This is a simple craft that’s perfect for preschoolers and my one year old enjoyed playing with the tissue paper too.
