Since my husband is Taiwanese, and we celebrate Chinese New Year (Monday the 23rd this year) with my in-laws, I decided to try my hand at creating some printables for Boogie because I could not find a lot of Chinese dragon printables online. I had a certain idea in my head of what I wanted so I decided to make them myself. There are only 9 pages, but it is my first try at this kind of thing :) Feel free to click on the link below to download the pages for your child(ren).
If you do use the printables and blog about them, please be sure to link back to my blog so others know where to get the file. I would also love it if you would let me know that you used them so I can link to your post! I would love to see how other children like the pages. And I will be sure to post pictures of Boogie too :)
My inspiration came from the printable made by Carisa at 1+1+1=1, Jolanthe at Homeschool Creations, and Erica at Confessions of a Homeschooler (link below). There are many other blogs with wonderful free printables, but the ones I chose to make are most like the ones made by these three talented and creative ladies, at least in style and hopefully in quality too!
To supplement the printables I made, we will also be using some of the letter D printables from COAH along with our tot trays, and crafts.
We will also be using the wonderful Chinese zodiac free printables over at Playing With Words 365. Katie's husband is half-Chinese so her family is celebrating the New Year, too. Katie and I have been chatting back and forth about ideas for our little ones and she is offering two wonderful freebies that each have tons of uses. Katie made a memory game and a clothespin wheel that you should definitely go check out.
Making Learning Fun also has some Chinese New Year printables, as does DLTK-kids.
And you can check out my Chinese New Year board on Pinterest for more great ideas.
