Chinese New Year Crafts for Kids

Chinese New Year is on January 23, 2012 this year and it’s going to be the Year of the Dragon.  It’s the most important of all Chinese holidays and is marked by festivities that include a lot of delicious foods and red decor placed for luck throughout the house.  My husband and I were both born and raised here in California but we still try and instill traditions for our children.  We’ll definitely be making some of these cute crafts!  All crafts and photographs except those noted are courtesy of Kaboose.
