Chinese Spring Festival Character Papercutting Mobile

Paper cutting is one of the oldest handicrafts in Chinese culture. The cut-outs are used to adorn walls, doors, and windows for a festive celebration. You will typically see the cut-outs on red paper because red represents good luck. In this simple Chinese Character Papercutting activity, your little one will be able to cut out one of the most popular Chinese characters for Chinese New Year Chun [春] and lucky symbols of Yuan Bao [元寶], gold coin, and flowers. Place this lucky character on the door or window or hang it as a mobile with the lucky symbols as embellishments! If you would like to print on your own colored paper, check out this outline template set. For more inspiration on Chinese New Year crafts, see here
