Happy Chinese New Year! To help ring in the Year of the Rat, we have a Chinese New Year lantern they can color in, cut out and display anywhere they’d like! Of course, it’s important to keep this lantern away from fire.

Just follow these steps to create your very own Chinese New Year lantern:
1. Color lantern and handle
2. Cut lantern and handle on black dotted lines
3. Fold lantern in half lengthwise
4. Cut lantern along gray dotted lines. (Be sure to not cut through the top of the paper)
5. Tape lantern together to make a cylinder
6. Tape handle to lantern

Those born within the Year of the Rat are said to be kind, intelligent and charming. No matter your Chinese zodiac sign, we wish you a year filled with happiness and loads of play!
