Lion dance

We actually made the tiger and the dancing lion. It’s all made from paper and it was quite a lot of cutting and gluing. We found the patterns from Canon’s Creative Park website.

According to Dr. Mao’s forecast for 2010:

In Chinese astrology the tiger is one of the most dynamic and powerful signs. Its nature is unpredictable, courageous, and explosive. Therefore, the year of the Tiger is usually associated with big changes and social disorder; 2010 is likely to be a turbulent year—on both a global and a personal level. However, those who gain an understanding of it through this article and their own spiritual awareness can cultivate the flexibility to adapt to changes and keep a steady hand on the keel through these rough waters. When you meet the challenges head on and get proactive about your health, you will be all the stronger for it by year’s end.

Ya’ll have a wonderful Chinese new year!
