*2018 edition: Year of the Dog* for Chinese New Year or Vietnamese New Year
2 styles are included in this download: The cylindrical lantern which is easier for young learners or the spherical lantern which requires a little more fine motor coordination. Both styles of lanterns come in black and white or in color. The handles for the cylindrical lantern say Happy New Year in both Chinese and Vietnamese. The cylindrical lantern comes in a Vietnamese edition with Vietnamese text only. The spherical lantern comes with the animals for the Chinese Zodiac and the Vietnamese Zodiac.
My kids love making lanterns for the Lunar New Year. In the past, I've always had them estimate how big to cut their strips...sometimes it worked, sometimes it didn't. This year I decided to take the guess work out and create a template for cutting. You may print the template in black and white and have the kids color the pictures or print the template in color. Another option is to print the template onto red or yellow paper to make it more festive for the new year. I recommend using card stock or construction paper.
