If you are celebrating the lunar new year, you are going to love our Chinese new year word scramble printable.

The Chinese New Year coincides with the lunar calendar. On the lunar calendar, the first day of the month begins during the new moon. Because of this, the Chinese New Year falls on different dates each year. However, it always falls between January 21 and February 21.

In 2023 Chinese New Year falls on January 22nd, and it will be the year of the rabbit.

We have created an easier and harder version of this Chinese new year word search, perfect for kids in upper elementary and middle school.

These free word scramble printables are perfect for the lunar new year and are great either for the classroom, or homeschooling.

There are 12 fun Chinese new year words to unscramble and to help out I have included the answers in the download.

I think you will also enjoy our free Chinese zodiac coloring pages for kids.

Unscramble the Lunar New Year Words

This Chinese new year word scramble is a great game for elementary and middle school-aged kids. I have added two versions of the word game.

One has no clues at all, and one has the actual words around the side of the puzzle to make it easier for younger kids.

Print off as many copies as you need and just have fun. Let me know in the comments what your hardest word was.

We also love playing mad libs all year round, but this lunar new year mad libs book is another great fun activity to keep them entertained.

The first sheet is the easiest word scramble. They all have 12 words to find, but this version below has the answers written in red around the sides. This will make it much easier for younger children.

I think younger children will also enjoy our free Chinese New Year memory game.

The second word scramble is much harder. There are no answers at all, so the children have to try and unscramble the words. The only clue is, all of the words are related to the Chinese new year!
