Diwali Craft: Make a Lantern

5
13

Materials:

    • Brightly colored tissue paper (in the spirit of Diwali)
    • Sequins or glitter
    • Glue and Q-tip to apply it
    • Scissors
    • Clear glass jar (transparent)
    • Craft wire (or even heavier string could work)
    • Beads
    Small candle

Instructions:

  1. Cut the tissue paper into small pieces–depending on your child’s age, they could also do this step.
  2. Allow your child to glue the pieces of tissue paper onto the glass jar, using a Q-tip to apply the glue (this prevents over-gluing and mess with young kids).
  3. Let kids “garnish” the light with sequins and glitter as they desire.
  4. Allow to dry.
  5. While the lantern is drying, have you child string beads on the wire.
  6. Wrap the wire around the lantern. You can even create a handle with the wire to hang the lantern if you desire!
  7. Put your candle inside, and you have yourself a lantern!
