This simple dot to dot drawing of a cheeky rat has the numbers from 1 to 28 in a largely oval shape. Children could join them first with a pencil and then go over them with a black marker or crayon before colouring in the picture.
This rat tracing page is a fun way to work on pencil control. Younger children can trace between the dotted lines, perhaps with a crayon or marker. Older kids can trace over all the dotted lines for a more challenging task. You could also laminate the page and re-use it using a dry wipe pen.

Help the rat reach the Chinese New Year goodies - lanterns, firecrackers and so on - by finding his way through the maze.
