Year of the Snake Lunar New Year Craft

In honor of the Lunar New Year, Queens Library at Sunnyside introduced children and their caregivers to Chinese culture through the art of making environmentally-friendly dragon puppets out of recycled paper, popsicle sticks and streamers. As the Lunar New Year's custom goes, two people get inside of a huge lion or dragon costume and perform a dance. The craft we made for the holiday is a tiny paper version of this traditional puppet. Happy Chinese New Year, or Gung Hay Fat Choy, to you. All the best to you in the year of the Snake!
