Happy New Year! I hope this year brings you good luck and health!

There are so many holidays of different cultures for all kids to learn about and today I have a bunch of worksheets to give you to learn about Chinese New Year.

Chinese New Year happens in the first two months of our traditional year depending on the Chinese calendar. This year it begins on February 1, 2022, and ends on February 15th with the lantern ceremony. Chinese New Year is also called the Lunar New Year or Spring Festival.

During this time, there is a transition between the Zodiac signs or Chinese Zodiac animals. The animals of the Chinese Zodiac represent different attributes of people with that birth year.

The 12 zodiac signs (or Chinese animal) rotate every 12 years and in order is the Year of the Rat, Year of the Ox, Year of the Tiger, Year of the Rabbit, Year of the Dragon, Year of the Snake, Year of the Horse, Year of the Goat, Year of the Monkey, Year of the Rooster, Year of the Dog, and Year of the Pig.

2021 was the year of the Ox and 2022 is the year of the Tiger! Following in order 2023 will be the year of the Rabbit.

Included in this Chinese New Year worksheets are two different activity backs. One is 8 different Chinese New Year color by number sheets and the other is different activity sheets to learn about the holiday.

Our retirement home gave us the Chinese New Year Word Scramble. We were able to unjumble every word except for number 6. ticerabee. We wondered if it was a mistake and was meant to contain the letters of "celebrate." Could you please let us know. My mother is perlexed! Thanks. :-)
