east and wonderful crafts from China. We're having a party - a
New Year's party complete with games, masks, dancing, music and
202-1 Tangram set:
You won't believe what you can make from just 7 pieces of paper!
202-2 Chinese Dragon Mask: When the first new moon enters
the sign of Aquarius, farmers and merchants in China perform
dragon and lion dances to usher in a prosperous new year. Create
this colorful foam mask and join in the celebration.
202-3 Dragon Dance stick: When you join the celebration,
you'll have your own dance stick with you. Styrofoam, paper
and glue create this fiery dragon.

202-5 Magpie Wind chime: The Magpie is a traditional
symbol of joy. Combine this exotic bird with the delicate sounds
of the wind in a fun craft using a fun, new material.
202-6 Festive Hanging Lantern: This paper lantern is
perfect for the full moon of Chinese New Year or to hang in
your own yard on a warm evening. Metallic two sided paper and
decorative scissors give a new look to traditional lanterns.
