I’ve got a great selection of Chinese New Year Crafts to share with you today. These fun crafts (and printables) are a great way to celebrate and decorate for Chinese New Year, as well as a way for children to learn about this festival.
Chinese New Year 2019 is the Year of the Pig, and falls on February 5th. 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.
The Pig occupies the last (12th) position in the Chinese Zodiac and 2019 will be a year of fortune and luck! Your Chinese Zodiac is Pig if you are born in one of these years: 1935, 1947, 1959, 1971, 1983, 1995, 2007, 2019.

Chinese New Year Crafts & Printables
We love to celebrate Chinese New Year in our household, I remember as a child going to Chinatown in London with my family and seeing the Lion Dance which always had me in complete awe, and we’d always enjoy some Chinese food too. My dad was really into Kung Fu in his younger days, so maybe that’s where it all stemmed from! You can read more about Chinese New Year on my blog here.
