This Chinese lantern craft is quick and easy to do, but a string of them hung across a room looks bright and pretty and perfect for a Chinese New Year or Lantern Festival display.
Happy Chinese New Year - Tuesday 5th February
You will need:
A4 coloured card
A4 coloured paper (in a different colour to the card)
Thread to hang
Fold the paper in half lengthwise. Cut lines through the fold to about 1 ½ inches from the top of the paper at about 1 inch intervals. Cut a ½ inch piece off the end.
Cut a strip of about 2 inches off the width of the card. Glue strips of tissue paper along the uncut side.
Take the paper and glue it on top of the card along the top and the bottom, matching the edges. You will find that the middle of the paper sticks out.
You should be left with a ½ inch strip of card showing along one side. Glue along this strip and bend the lantern round into a cone shape. Staple to secure.
With the tissue paper hanging at the bottom, make two small holes in the top. Tie some thread through to hang the lantern.
Here's a pretty sun catcher heart to display in your window for Valentine's Day. Children will enjoy tearing the tissue paper and creating their design.
You will need:
Tissue paper in red, pink and purple
Cut out a heart from card. Cut out the middle carefully.
Turn over so you are working on the back.
Paint the acetate with a layer of clear drying glue. Stick on ripped up pieces of tissue paper. Stick down any loose pieces with more glue.
Leave to dry.
