Here are the cupcakes that I am making for the party.
I got the idea from FamilyCorner.com
Here are the crafts we will be doing
Making Chinese Yo-Yos
I posted how we will make these here.
We are also planning on making a Chinese New Year banner
Got the idea and directions from Gracenotes.
Another craft we will be making is a dragon mask. You can find the printout here. We will be attaching red streamers to the back on the top so that when the kids are wearing the mask the streamers will flow over their head and behind them and when they run around the streamers will flow out. Haven't tried it yet so I hope it is not one of those things that works perfect in my mind and tanks when we actually do it.
The last craft I have planned is a 3D paper tiger (since it is the year of the tiger).
I found the directions here with a few other zodiac animals. They have the directions and the printout.
