Chinese New Year

Happy Chinese New Year! Here are some crafts and recipes to help you celebrate the beginning of the Year of the Monkey.

1) Chinese Papercuts — I love the example in the image above, but you might want to start with a simpler design.

2) 10 Year of the Monkey Craft Projects — This list is meant for kids, but the coloring page and origami would be fun at any age!

3) Knit Washcloths — Try the "Chinese Waves" stitch pattern. I don't know why it's called that, but it looks easy and scrubby.

4) Celebrate with Traditional Food — Read this interesting article about traditional Lunar New Year celebrations and the foods that are part of them. Then, try your hand at making Buddha's Delight, sticky rice cakes, or other delicacies.
