DIY EZ Chinese New Year Crafts

UPDATE  GO HERE for the Tutorial on making all these crafts!


It's no secret that I LOVE to throw a celebration of any kind at anytime...Chinese New Year is fast approaching (Jan 23rd) and I am preparing for our school party!  It's the Year of the Dragon! Which makes my son extremely excited!  We will be celebrating with another homeschool family and I am working on some inexpensive, DIY, EZ Crafts for decor. (challenging myself this year with a $ 10 budget for each school party...let's see how I do..)


Took me all of 15 minutes to whip up 6 of these cute felt Fortune Cookies
for the kids (with a surprise inside)
Watch for Tutorial coming up this week...
(using all materials I already had, you probably do also)




Firecrackers are a BIG DEAL for Chinese New Year
(We will have some real ones for decor but these toilet paper
roll ones are just as cute and less dangerous)


Paper Lanterns - these will be embellished with some jewels and a 
paper handle put on them - string a bunch of these babies up
and you have a little China Town of your own.

Coloring Pages - go HERE to print some off for a craft

THIS is a cute Dragon craft you can do also with the kids!

A few other things I purchased at the Dollar Store - bright gold paper placemats (8 for $ 1),
a few gold and red hanging ornaments from Hobby Lobby at 80% off.

So far my total for this party is a big $ 3.50!

More to come...

Why not celebrate with your kids and invite some others over..
