This Chinese New Year coloring book is the latest addition to my Chinese New Year printables! With 30 pages to color, this free printable coloring book is fun for all ages and has lots of awesome pictures associated with the Chinese New Year and the Year of the Ox!
Chinese New Year 2021 is the Year of the OX and falls on February 12th. I have shared lots of Chinese New Year printables over the years, and I like to update them so that they reflect the correct Chinese Zodiac signs.

Chinese New Year Coloring Book
The Ox is the second of all zodiac animals. According to one myth, the Jade Emperor said the order would be decided by the order in which they arrived to his party. The Ox was about to be the first to arrive, but Rat tricked Ox into giving him a ride. Then, just as they arrived, Rat jumped down and landed ahead of Ox. Thus, Ox became the second animal. – Chinese Zodiac
Your Chinese Zodiac is Ox if you are born in one of these years: 1925, 1937, 1949, 1962, 1973, 1985, 1997, 2009, 2021.
This awesome coloring book is packed with 30 pages to color in (including the front cover) and you can print off as many pages from the book as you like.
Pick your favorites and print off just those coloring pages, or print them all off and color to your heart’s content!
For demonstration purposes, I’ve digitally colored the front cover, but it is blank in the free printable.
The cover says “Chinese New Year Coloring Book” and has a picture of a little Chinese girl and boy, as well as a couple of firecrackers.
Since this is a Chinese New Year printable activity for 2021, you will find the Year of the Ox and my cute character, Ollie the Ox to color in too!
I’ve also got a Build-An-Ox printable template that you might want to download next. You can copy the colors or go wild with your own color story!

Suggested Art Supplies
I like to keep a good stash of art supplies so that I am always ready when my nieces and nephews come to visit. You don’t need all the things on my suggested art supplies list, but I wanted to share some of my favorites with you.
- I love Crayola Super Tips – they come in boxes of various amounts – I’ve got the 100 count box as you can never have too many colors!
- If your child (or you!) prefers to use crayons, I don’t think you can go wrong with classic Crayolas, again they come in various counts.
- Prefer colored pencils? I really don’t think you can go wrong with Crayolas for coloring!
- They also have fun scented pencils which will no doubt bring the holiday coloring page alive with smells!
- Does your child like to paint? I bought this Arteza Kid’s Watercolor Kit for my 6-year-old niece and she loves it!
- Want to add some sparkle? Add glitter! Crayola has a 25 count set, and a 9 count set of glitter glue.
- For puzzle and activity sheets, make sure you have writing pencils, an eraser, and a pencil sharpener.
- Highlighter pens are perfect for marking off words in Word Search Puzzles.
