|Winter lantern Festival|
I would like to show you is this lantern that I made with Theo. He was home from kindi for 2 weeks whilst unwell and as he recovered we found the chance to craft together.
He missed out on making a lantern at school, which is a yearly tradition ending with an evening lantern walk - so we made our own. A quick look through Pinterest and we were all set.
This is what we made.
|We used vegetable oil to make our water colour paintings translucent, then I did lots of folding whilst Theo claimed he was hungry! A bit challenging for a small boy - fun for me. A very good and detailed tutorial is here|
|Then we had to be very patient and wait for the glue to dry until the next stage! time for a snack.|
We then stuck the base and spent time shaping the lantern - sorry too busy folding to take photos!
