Chinese Character Cards

Chinese Character Cards for kids to make

Have the kids make Chinese Character Cards to send inspiring messages to friends and family for Chinese New Year. They can be used any day and don’t have to be for a special occasion. This craft also makes good invitations for an Asian themed party.

The kids might also be interested in the Chinese Lantern Mobile where we have provided more symbols and their meaning for your craft.


Chinese characters are one of the most interesting parts of the Chinese language, and many kids find them interesting too. They’re not really pictures (some of the most basic ones you could describe as pictograms), but with repetition and playing they become easier to remember.
