Chinese New Year

The Chinese Lunar New Year began on January 28th and welcomed the Year of the Rooster.

The Chinese Zodiac 

The word zodiac means circle of animals. There are 12 different animals in the zodiac, with a different animal for each period. Over the years, the Chinese zodiac developed into a way to tell the future, by knowing when you were born.

Each animal sign has a meaning. Based on your animal, you were born with certain characteristics that both helped and hindered you. It was your job to build on the good ones and overcome the bad ones. If you were born in  1981, 1993, 2005 (or due to be born in 2017) you might be a rooster!

People born during the Year of the Rooster make wonderful friends. They are very busy people and always looking for new things to do.

The other animals in the Chinese  Zodiac are: monkey, dog, pig, rat, ox, tiger, dragon, snake, horse, rabbit and sheep.

Golden Panda Restaurant

Here at Bramble Box we welcomed The Year of the Rooster with our pretend play Chinese restaurant kit (which is just one of the wonderful themes so far this year).  Join us in celebrating with our free pretend play printables!

Our kit contains all the materials to create fortune cookies, wontons, egg rolls and lo mein. We made the lo mein with yarn and felt vegetable shapes and used small takeout cartons which we customized with printed labels. Our kit also included four sets of chopsticks. You can find out tutorial on how to make the felt food here.

Our kit also included menus for our Golden Panda Restaurant, a dragon craft and a rooster craft.

You can find our free printable menus, thank you labels and fortune cookie sheets below to create your very own Chinese restaurant!
