Paper Crafts for Chinese New Year by Randel McGee is a fun, easy-to-follow paper crafts book. A short, informative write-up about the history, symbolism and traditions of Chinese New Year opens this child-friendly Chinese New Year read.

There were 8 colorful projects to choose from. My son and I made the Dancing Dragon Puppet. I enjoyed cutting the patterns and gluing the parts together; my son loved painting the dragon head and tail a bright red. My daughter made the Chinese Lantern, drawing her own style of flowers, and the painted her own version of the Chinese Symbols Banners. Projects were fairly simple, taking just an afternoon to finish.
