Chinese New Year is coming soon. This year, 2013 heralds the Year of The Snake in the Chinese Zodiac calendar. Though snake are often depicted as slippery, sneaky, slimy creatures in cartoons and such and little children may be afraid of them, now is the time to teach them a little about snakes in a fun way.

There is only one snake to color on this page but I like the Snake's Chinese New Year Outfit.
Get your child to color the Snake's Chinese style clothing in bright red and gold and use it to decorate your home with this Chinese New Year.
Then it can serve a dual purpose. It is a craft or activity plus a Chinese New Year Decoration. Make several of these and paste them in the play room for a fun Year of the Snake decor.
There are plenty more Snake Coloring pages but I am only featuring these few because I like them the best. I think the snakes look adorable and they are suitable as a Chinese New Year activity compared to some of the other more scary or boring looking snakes for kids to color. These snakes are not scary. They're just cute and kids will enjoy coloring them.
