Paper lanterns

I had so much fun making these paper lanterns with my children. They have been asking me about Chinese New Year and apart from confirming that it was going to happen soon and that it is also the year of the horse my mind was totally blank. I remembered making paper lanterns as a child, so before their attention had moved onto something else I quickly got out some patterned paper, scissors and glue. I got them to cut the paper but they had no idea what they were making. The look on their faces when I showed them a finished lantern was as if I had performed an amazing magic trick. The children were so pleased with them and they looked so pretty I hung them up. We then went off, of course and researched (o.k, quickly googled) Chinese New Year.
