Despite the rain, our preschool celebrated Martinmas last night with a traditional lantern walk. We ended up making lanterns that look very much like last years.
...a cross between paper lanterns and yarn bowls. And while the idea seemed like fun and they DO look pretty, they were a bit difficult for my five-year-old to make and the yarn uses alot (ALOT) of glue so I decided not to challenge my preschoolers with this project. Instead we made the same kind as last year.
Day 1: using a mix of glue and water we pasted white tissue paper over the bottom part of balloons.
Day 2: The kids added colorful tissue paper.
Again, drying in the basement.
