They say it will be the year of the tiger in China. So interesting how they have animals to represent each year.
I wasn’t quite feeling tiger-ish quite yet (maybe tomorrow), so we decided to make dragons instead. Although, from my understanding, dragons are a constant “animal” in China. Plus, I found a really cute, easy craft using handprints to make dragons and thought it was a nice fit for my trio.
These handprint dragons were found on www.activityvillage.com and all you have to do is trace your child’s hand and cut it out about 5-6 times.
Activity Village has a template for the dragon face, legs and tail, which you can color or cut out of colored paper.
So there you have it, our craft for today. Tomorrow we’ll be celebrating with a fun Chinese New Year Party.
