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 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.
To learn more about the Chinese new year, try one of these fun visual picture books to see what it’s all about. 2018 is the year of the Dog which is also by year as well. We love to visit a Chinese Buffet and every year they give out a calendar with the Chinese astrological signs and the meanings for your birth year, the kids love to see what animal they are.
It’s a time for firecrackers and money is given in red envelopes to close family members.

Addition Puzzles Supplies
- Printer (I have this one)
- Paper or cardstock
- Laminator (optional)
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.
Print out the additon puzzles from here and practice adding up to 11.
