Chinese New Year’s is celebrated by many of the Asian countries including where my family is from. I thought it would be a fun theme to create some Chinese New Year addition puzzles for anyone who will be celebrating or studying it as well.
For some, this is a huge celebration and it’s always a time of family and great food to celebrate the new year. My mother always visits the temple and it’s something everyone looks forward to each year.
The lunar new year is celebrated in other countries, not only China such as Thailand, Vietnam, Singapore, Malaysia, Taiwan, and Hong Kong.

This are the supplies needed to print out these Chinese New Year Addition Puzzles.
- Printer (I have this one)

Print out the puzzles onto paper, I then like to laminate them so we can reuse them again. Cut them out and they’re ready to go.
These puzzles go up to 11 and each number as two puzzles so that your child can see that a different set of numbers can add up to the same number.
Make certain that your child understands how to put the puzzles together and that they can easily identify the numbers as well. This three-part learning puzzle is great in how they can easily use it to learn and add in multiple different ways.
