Chinese Lion Dance Costume

The kids will have great fun making this super Chinese Lion Dance costume - and wearing it in their own Chinese New Year parade!

Chinese Lion Dance Costume

You will need:

A large cardboard box
Coloured paper
Long piece of fabric


Cut eye holes from the box, and then paint the box in bright coloured paint.

When the paint is dry, cut out a mane, eyes, nose, mouth and other decorations from coloured paper. Glue these on to your lion’s head.

Finally staple the fabric to the back of the head to form a tail. Wear your costume to hold your own lion dance parade!
