Year of the Rabbit Activities – Worksheets & Printables

| |

As you know we love to plan for Lunar New Year.. and explore the different Zodiac Animals.. this year, 2023, it is the Year of the Rabbit. And the year of the rabbit falls on Saturday 22nd January 2023.

And as per usual, we have a fantastic set of Year of the Rabbit Activities for you to explore.

Now all these Chinese New Year activities are availble here on Red Ted Art. You can browse our key collections:

However, I have also created a series of worksheets and printables to go with many of the most popular crafts. The worksheets are designed for easy printing to use in the classroom, a library setting or at home!

These are available as easy Bundle Downloads on Teacher’s Pay Teachers! They do have a small fee attached to them. This allows of those of you who wish to, to make a small contribution towards the upkeep of this site and the continued development of new crafts and templates for your use. Think of it as buying me a coffee! 🙂

Obviously, I am mindful that not everyone has the financial resources, so you can still enjoy the majority of these crafts by visiting the following and “hopping about” a bit to your favourite blog posts!
