A Year of the Ox craft activity to help celebrate Lunar New Year!

Use this teaching resource when celebrating the Lunar New Year with your students.

How to construct the lantern:

  1. Color the lantern and handle (if using the black and white version).
  2. Cut out the lantern along the solid lines.
  3. Fold the lantern in half along the horizontal (longer) axis.
  4. Cut along the dotted lines, making sure you stop at the end of each line. Do not cut all the way through!
  5. Unfold your paper. With the colored section on the outside, curl the lantern around and glue the ends together to create a circular lantern.
  6. Cut out the paper strip on the lantern template. Use a stapler to attach this paper handle to the lantern.

There are two versions of the resource available: a color version or a black and white version for students who want to add their own colors and designs. Use the drop-down menu to choose your preferred option.
