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.
This week on Tuesday Tutorials I’m showcasing some easy Chinese lantern craft ideas that are a great way for kids to get involved in celebrating Chinese New Year.
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 I even managed to keep the one year old busy and happy at the same by giving to her some tissue paper to play with.
This cute sheep craft made from cupcake liners is perfect for helping kids to celebrate Chinese New Year (it’s the Year of the Sheep this year!) or is great for kids who just like animals. Me and my son made these side by side and it was a nice way to unwind after a busy morning at preschool for him. Cupcake liner crafts are great fun for kids and as they are a cheap it makes them an easy craft to do that you won’t mind if it only takes five minites!
