YOUNGSTERS got into the spirit of Chinese New Year with two days of craft-making fun at Ely Museum.

Children between the ages of seven and 12 made paper lanterns, Chinese dragons, masks and red money envelopes to celebrate the event.

Polly Hodgson, curator at the Market Street museum, said: "We had 25 on the first day and 20 on the second. Everyone enjoyed themselves and there were lots of smiley faces.

"We wanted to get some different cultures into the museum and we thought this would be a good way of doing that."

Chinese New Year is a 15-day celebration which starts at the end of January. The year 2006 is the Year of the Dog.
