Chinese New Year Coloring Book

Tigers are the third of the Chinese zodiacs. According to legend, Tiger was confident that no one could compete with its speed and vigor for the celestial race that would decide the order of the zodiacs. However, when Tiger climbed out of the river, thinking it was first, it was informed that Rat placed first for its cunning and Ox placed second for its diligence. This left the king of the jungle having to settle for third place. – Chinese Zodiac

Your Chinese Zodiac is Tiger if you are born in one of these years: 1926, 1938, 1950, 1962, 1974, 1986, 1998, 2010, 2022.


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 2022, you will find the Year of the Tiger and my cute character, Terry the Tiger to color in too!

I’ve also got a Build-A-Tiger printable template that you might want to download next. You can copy the colors or go wild with your own color story!

A Color and Build Tiger and Ox Printable are available to buy in my shop!

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.
