Last week, Lichfield Mandarin Club were celebrating the Mooncake Festival. As I am in charge of the craft side, I decided to ask the children to paint a Chinese lantern. I first saw the Chinese lantern’s display in Chinatown while I was in Singapore last month. So I bought the paper lanterns online and planned on recreating a similar display with our club.
- 8 inch coloured paper lanterns
- Different coloured paints
- Paint pots
- Open up the paper lantern and pop in the wire to hold the lantern.
- Use dark coloured paints for lighter colour paper lantern, and vice versa.
- Hang up to dry.
Hope you like our children’s creations!
