Goodbye Christmas, hello Chinese New Year!

Back in November, shops have already started selling Chinese New Year decorations and goodies. It was oh so, confusing with Christmas and Chinese New Year marked so close each other.

With the Lunar New Year fast approaching (another 10 days?!), it’s time to get into the festive mood and start our preparations.

Here’s a fuss-free way to DIY your house and show off your kids’ craft to your visitors (even if your kid isn’t crafty).

Materials:

  • Dot-A-Dot markers (in pink or red)
  • Black Sharpie marker
  • Drawing paper

Directions:

  1. On a piece of paper, draw branches with black Sharpie marker.
  2. Start dotting with your pink and red Dot-A-Dot markers.
  3. Optional: write Chinese New Year greetings.
  4. Hang it up!

This is one craft where you can never go wrong, and doesn’t require clean-up. I love the fact that no matter how your kids dot the flowers, it still turns out okay.

Which of the two paintings belong to Hannah? Make a guess!
