lantern and kite making

Making lanterns is one of my favourite projects.  I love the way they all look so individual.  When lit, the glow from them all together looks so magical.   Lanterns are great for older school children to make, either as one big parade lantern or one each.  They are a bit messy and do take some time to create, but once finshed they are a fabulous project to mark an event or carry on a parade.

Kites are wonderful and easy to make.  They are colourful and can be decorated to fit in with many themes.  It is really exciting trying to get them to fly.
