Make a Dragon Card for The Chinese New Year

The Chinese New Year is on February 10th this year. It’s the year of the Dragon! The dragon symbolizes power, nobility and ambition.

Since dragons are so cool, I decided to make homemade cards featuring them. Fortunately, there’s a free tutorial online showing how to draw one. You can purchase blank cards from sites like Amazon and Michaels. They’re great to have, so you can always make homemade cards whatever the occasion. It’s a lot of fun and people really appreciate them.

Here’s a link to the online tutorial for drawing a dragon¬†from a site called Art Projects for Kids. I made the spikes on the dragon gold because it’s an auspicious color in Chinese culture. It symbolizes wealth, longevity and¬†happiness. Red is a lucky color and symbolizes good fortune and joy. Both gold and red are important colors for the New Year.

Here’s a link on Mama Lisa’s World to learn Songs for the Chinese New Year.

Enjoy & Happy Chinese New Year!
