What kids can learn from English and Chinese New Year coloring sheets

The holidays are the busiest time of year, and these Happy New Year coloring pages in Chinese and English are here to help. Print them for your child so you can wrap presents and accomplish other important things.

Your child will build great skills with these New Year coloring sheets.


Learn the years 2023 and 2024 from the Happy New Year coloring pages. If your toddlers or preschoolers are learning numbers, the coloring pages can help them remember the year.


Although my kids usually color independently, sometimes I join them because I find coloring relaxing, too! When we’re together, we talk about the colors we choose. The different confetti shapes and designs on our New Year coloring pages can be used for playing “I Spy!”.

Since we’re raising bilingual kids, I try to focus on speaking Chinese, the minority language, at home. But they are also fluent in English, our family and community language.

For younger kids, you can use the New Year coloring pages to teach happy greetings in English and Chinese greetings, such as:

  • Let’s celebrate! 庆祝新年 / 慶祝新年 (Qìngzhù xīnnián)
  • I wish you a Happy New Year 祝你新年快乐! / 祝你新年快樂! (Zhù nǐ xīnnián kuàilè)

Learn how to read common words, including:

  • Hello 你好 (Nǐ hǎo)
  • Goodbye 再见 / 再見 (Zàijiàn)
  • Happy New Year 新年快乐 / 新年快樂 (Xīnnián kuàilè)

To help kids learn to read English and memorize Chinese characters, the black-and-white words and images (fireworks, shapes, confetti) are intentionally simple.


Kids ready to write can color in each word according to the normal English alphabet and Chinese stroke order.

Coloring outside the lines

If you have a child to tends toward perfectionism, coloring can be a chance to practice being okay with making “mistakes”.

Toddlers and preschools naturally need the freedom to scribble. But as they grow, kids can get stressed out about their drawings not looking how they had hoped. To show my kids that it’s okay to create art with an unexpected outcome, sometimes I color outside the lines on purpose!

How to include younger kids with New Year coloring pages

Once my younger child turned 1, he was always eager to try whatever his big sister was doing. During those early toddler years, I used to tape his coloring pages onto a tape. He loved going wild with scribbling, touching the words and shapes, and crinkling the paper!
