Chinese New Year is celebrated on a different day each year because it is based on the Lunar year. And each year is named after an animal based on a 12 year cycle. In 2014, the year of the horse, it will be celebrated on January 31. People born in the same year are considered to have similar traits. There are plenty of cute crafts on the website, some of which are displayed above, that your kids will have a blast making in celebration of this interesting and unique holiday! Chinese New Year isn’t happening until over a week from today but I thought I would make the post a bit early to give everyone a chance to make crafts in the days prior to the special day! There is also another link below for anyone who wants to learn more about their Zodiac sign and what it means for them!
