Lunar New Year Crafts

On February 12th, those who celebrate Lunar New Year (sometimes referred to as Chinese New Year or Spring Festival) are preparing to welcome the coming Year of the Ox! Normally, millions of people around the world travel to celebrate with their extended families and loved ones. Lots of cities hold festivals and parades. But because of the pandemic, travel is much more limited this year and many large celebrations have been cancelled. In the spirit of spreading love while apart, we've made three easy crafts that can be mailed! Scroll to the bottom of this post for the free PDF downloads.

1. Paper lantern cards (2 varieties)

2. Year of the Ox "hugging" bookmark (tip: laminate to use over and over without wear!)

3. Paper fans (or hanging decorations) - see step-by-step photos below.
