설날 Seollal Coloring Pages
This year, Lunar New Year falls on February 12, 2021. And, it begins the Year of the Ox. To help celebrate, have fun with this two-sided coloring page. It highlights different traditions Koreans celebrate during Seollal. You can read a little bit about them below or in-depth on other sites here.
The coloring pages include lots of fun details to get lost in. Practice your Korean while coloring in the words. Also, romanization is not too far for those still learning to read Hangul. Both coloring pages are free for subscribers and available for download on the Member Portal in the Activity Pages section.
To help spread the cheer, I’m also including an oversized coloring page (11×14″) with any Hanbok Sticker orders placed now through the end of the month.
