Aaah yes time for some more printable fun! This time we are celebrating the 12 Chinese Zodiac Animals, with some super simple Zodiac Animal Greeting Card Printables for Chinese New Year.
The cards are design to show kids the Chinese characters for Happy New Year as well as the phonic pronounciation! They are then prompted to draw their Zodiac Animal of choice.
The idea of these cards is to encourage children to draw and have fun. Each card will be unique to them. They can choose to create the “current year of” animal (2022 is the Year of the Tiger, 2023 is the Year of the Rabbit!).
When is Chinese New Year?
This year, is the Year of the Rabbit and it falls on Saturday 22nd January 2023!
