Make a red envelope for Chinese New Year
At Chinese New Year it is traditional for parents and elders to give gifts of "lucky money" to children and unmarried adults.  The money, which can vary from a small, new coin to a substantial sum, is always presented in a red envelope. It's easy to make a red envelope - why not have a go with the children?
You will need:
Red paper
Gold paint/ pen
Glue
Red Envelope Template
Instructions:
Print out our template onto red paper and cut out.
Fold along the marked lines and glue the small flaps down, leaving the top open.
Use gold paint or a pen to draw a Chinese character on the front of the envelope. You can find some inspiration from our Chinese calligraphy cards if you like.
