Chinese New Year Card

Chinese / Lunar New Year Craft for Kids


We love to embrace other cultures and use their holidays or traditions as fun ways to learn more about that culture. Chinese New Year is no different. While shopping for Valentine’s Day treats I found these adorable pencils and erasers to give out and I needed a fun a creative way to give them out. I remembered seeing these awesome postcards while I was on the internet, of course, I didn’t save them I just admired them from afar, so I had to search for them. I finally found them and had to share them with you. This is my first time visiting Miss T ESL, check out the site and this wonderful craft!
