Happy Year of the Dragon!
February 10th marks the Lunar New Year where we leave the Year of the Rabbit and enter the Year of the Dragon! This zodiac sign has particular significance for our Panda Mandarin founders because their mothers and daughter are all Dragons!
Lunar New Year is celebrated by families all over the world and lasts for more than two weeks, traditionally ending on February 24th, with many gatherings, meals, and community events families take part in.
Whether your family has deep Lunar New Year traditions or are just learning about it, you can enjoy learning about the language of this festival with our free printables and videos.
In the printables, kids can colour, decorate, fold, and display different dragon-related crafts. They will get to learn and practice common vocabulary and phrases such as:
jīn yuán bǎo
gam1 jyun4 bou2
