DIY CNY Craft: Paper Fish

If you like fishy-fishy, as 鱼 sounds like 余 which means "abundance". 
Nian Nian You Yu (年年有余) = abundance of money year after year
Here is another simple craft you can do with your children using red packets, a scissors & a stapler...

Fold in one side to make a big corner.

 Use a scissors to cut out the shape.

Cut in between the tail until halfway.

Take 1 side of the "tail" & intersect the other side of the "tail" & use the stapler to staple at the intersection.

Tadah...a fish is created...

Here's wishing all of you a Prosperous Chinese New Year! Huat ah!
