We’re crowing over the upcoming Lunar New Year. This family-centric celebration starts on the first day of the new moon on the Chinese calendar (Jan. 28!), and we’ve searched high and low for ways to involve the whole crew. From paper lanterns and red envelopes to lunar calendars and rooster art, scroll down and let the little ones strut their stuff.

Little DIY-ers can show off their handiwork with this simple rooster craft. You’ll need a paper plate, colored paper, and glue. Hang it up as new year decor and watch your little one preen with delight. Find the how-to, here.
