| | | |

Another year and another zodiac animal! This year, is the Year of the Dragon and we have another fun and free activity for Chinese New Year! Today, have a look at this free Printable Greeting Card for the Year of the Dragon. Kids are encouraged to draw their very own DRAGON. Then have a look at the Chinese writing and pronounciation of “Happy New Year” and “xin nian kuai le” (pronounced shin nee-an kwai le)! A great little learning activity and a fun way to connect with friends and family.

Children can also take a look at the Characters that say Happy New Year in Chinese, as well as have a go at the pronunciation:
