I want to show you how to make a Chinese Lantern Craft..
There you go:
You will need:
Black card (or red, for a more traditional Chinese lantern)
Lots of different colored tissue paper.
Thread to hang
Draw your design on to the black card. When you are happy cut out your ‘windows’.
Older children may like to try more complex designs. Younger children will need this done for them. Our lantern was made by Sam, aged 2, and so is very simple.
Glue around the edges of the windows and cover with tissue paper.
Roll the card into a cylinder shape and staple together. Make two holes at the top and thread through some wool or thread to hang.
