Chinese New Year Coloring Book

10 February 2024 is the start of the Chinese New Year and the Year of the Dragon!

Your Chinese zodiac is Dragon if you were born in one of these years: 1952, 1964, 1976, 1988, 200, 2012, and 2024.

We first shared our Chinese New Year Coloring Book for the Year of the Rat in 2020 and have been updating it with the new year’s particular animal ever since.

For 2024, it is the dragon and the black-and-white version of Dingxiang the Dragon. You can copy the colors we used for the Chinese dragon or go wild with your own bright colors.

Dingxiang the Dragon features in all of our free printables for Chinese New Year (Lunar New Year), which we’ve been making and sharing since the Year of the Monkey in 2016!

It also happens that the Year of the Dragon was one of the first big things we celebrated on The Purple Pumpkin Blog back in 2012 with a Chinese Banquet. If you are planning your own dinner party, be sure to take a look at these 50+ Delicious Recipes for Chinese New Year.
