How to Make Chinese New Year Angpow Fishes

Angpow Fish

Keep your kids’ little fingers busy! Let them have fun folding these fishes from angpow paper. Thereafter, hang, paste and display these fishes around the house, and you’ll get all festive and ready for Chinese New Year!

These are CNY crafts that are easy enough even for preschoolers to make and are also a great way to make use of the red packets (once they have been emptied of the money of course). Have fun making them any time of the year!
