Another in the Enslow Press series Paper Craft Fun for Holidays, Chinese New Year explores basic facts about the holiday and offeres simple, effective crafts that children should have no difficulty making. Librarians, teachers and parents will find this title by California storyteller, puppeteer, papercrafter and Hans Christian Andersen portrayer Randal McGee a useful addition to their libraries. Instructions are easy to follow and children age 8 and up should have no difficulty making the crafts; younger children may require some assistance with cutting. Plenty of white space on the pages and good use of color will make this appealing book appealing to children.
This is a colorful and fun book that reflects Randel McGee's enthusiastic writing style and creativity. Although the projects and text are very simple, he does a nice job of including some basic background and Chinese cultural information for each project. The resource section has a few reproducible templates that will come in handy. Lucky Bamboo Book of Crafts
Book has easy to follow templates and is informative. I used it for a celebration of Chinese New Year with elementary age children. We made lanterns and dragons. They came out well.
perfect for classroom activity
