Sunday Linkage: Chinese New Year Crafts

This week I'm doing double duty: two Sunday Linkages, both focused on the Chinese New Year holiday. This one focuses on links to recipes, crafts and other fun activities related to Chinese New Year. I hope y'all enjoy the links! And you still have one week to get ready -- the holiday begins next Sunday and lasts for two weeks.

Year of the Tiger: CNY Craft Activities -- adoptive momma (China) Kim K. at Musings from Kim K... photos and links to many tiger craft ideas (be sure to also check out an oldie, but goodie from Kim: Recycle your glass jars and make CNY lanterns!)

A Chinese New Year Feast Fit for a Tiger -- guest post by Lisa Barnes of Petit Appetit at make and takes... healthy recipes for Long Life Noodles, Beef-Filled Lettuce Cups, Tangerine or Blood Orange Granita and Ginger Soda

Asian New Year Craft: Tiger Lanterns -- adult adoptee (Korea) Mama King at 4 Crazy Kings... give a paper lantern a tiger twist

Fortune Cookies for Valentines and Chinese New Year -- crafty blogger Cindy Hopper (and aunt to two nieces from China) at the group blog Alpha Mom... a fortune cookie photo tutorial and recipe

Chopstick Math for Chinese New Year
-- writer and former kindergarten teacher Tina Cho at Education.com... using chopsticks to develop fine motor skills and practice counting

2010 Chinese New Year in Washington, DC -- guide Rachel Cooper at About.com... for the few locals out there who read Our Little Tongginator: this year's Chinese New Year activities in and around the DC area

Chinese New Year Fish -- Canadian living in Taiwan Julie at Julie K. in Taiwan... a cute fish craft (the Mandarin word for fish, 鱼 yu2, sounds similar to the Mandarin word for abundance, 裕 yu4, so whole fish is a necessary Chinese New Years Eve dish)

Countdown to the New Year -- an on-line game from PBS Kids, courtesy of the show Sagwa: The Chinese Siamese Cat

Celebrate Chinese New Year with Ni Hao, Kai-Lan
-- blogger Asian Mommy at Asianmommy.com... links to a dozen Kai-Lan activities related to Chinese New Year
