Printable Chinese New Year Activities

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 have been sharing free Chinese New Year Printables since the Year of the Monkey in 2016, and this activity pack arrived in 2020 for the Year of the Rat.

So that you can celebrate the beginning of a new year, the printables are updated annually to reflect that year’s zodiac animal.

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.

Fun Chinese New Year Activities

We have added even more activity sheets to this year’s updated pack, which is a great way to teach kids of all ages about Chinese New Year traditions.

Six Coloring Pages – grab the MarkersCrayons, or Coloring Pencils and color the Year of the DragonYear of the RabbitYear of the TigerYear of the Ox, and Year of the Rat. All these are the coloring versions of our buildable characters. 

The final Chinese New Year coloring page in this pack features a Lion Dance and the Chinese character set for Kung Hei Fat Choi, which is Cantonese for Wishing You Prosperity!

Two Word Searches – with two skill levels (easy and medium) with words related to the Chinese New Year theme, such as red pockets (also known as red envelopes), fu symbol, rice cakes, and dragon.

Shadow Matching – a visual skills activity where you match the full-color image with the correct shadow.

Word Scrambles – with two sets of words to unscramble, these free Chinese New Year worksheets will help increase vocabulary. One set of words is the Chinese zodiac animals, and the other set is more general to the vibrant Chinese festival, like money, fireworks, and traditions.

Four Mazes – each of the different style mazes features a fun task that young children will love, such as helping the animals reach the party with the Jade Emperor and taking the family members through the maze to watch the Lantern Festival.

Line Tracing – this is a great activity to enhance fine motor skills as you trace over the lines from one side of the page to the other.

Crossword – unlike regular crossword puzzles, this crossword uses imagery like fortune cookies, mandarins, and a Chinese dragon to fill in the puzzle.

Envelope Template – print out on red paper to make a lucky red envelope. In China and other Asian countries that celebrate the Lunar New Year, red envelopes are filled with money and given to wish a happy new year. The red color symbolizes good luck and wards off evil spirits.

Puzzle Solutions – And, of course, all the solutions to the puzzles are included.
