Make Your Own Puppet Dragon for this Chinese New Years Coming in Late January


Based on the Chinese Zodiac,  2012 is the Year of the Dragon. It begins on January 23, 2012.   The Dragon,  the fifth sign, is a mythical creature representing emperor and  power. Today, it  is the luckiest sign for men in the zodiac.  If you want to see A LOT of pregnant women, visit China during the year of the dragon.   I remember writing home, “Mom, I think everybody here is pregnant.  No wonder people are suspicious that the population is about to explode in China!’  This year, why don’t you celebrate by making your own puppet dragon!  Watch this:

The only dragon parade I saw for Chinese New Years was in San Francisco, however.  Here you will seen them, a long with lion dances, in temple birthday parades.

  1. Thank you for sharing my dragon puppet craft on your blog! I will be meeting with a delegation of Taiwanese librarians at a storytelling festival in Miami this April. I will be visiting your site often during the next 3 months. Best Wishes!

    • Your dragon puppet craft show was a popular tweet. I was glad to put it up for the beginning of the Chinese New Years season. Hope you enjoy using Mandarin Click by Click. Good luck with the delegation.
