My mini was not with me at the event yesterday; she was spending quality time with her father, but I made sure to go so that I could make her a lantern to participate in the parade. This craft was really easy to make. It didn't take a lot of supplies and could be used for a variety of celebrations or for everyday use. If your child is afraid of the dark like Kenedi, this could be a really cool and personable night light. The supplies that we were given included scraps of black construction paper, multi colored transparency paper, glue sticks, scissors and a blank lantern made out of taped pieces of sturdy plastic with a tiny flash light taped inside of it.
To make this craft at home, try using a milk carton or any other sturdy piece of plastic. Check back in to see more lanterns from the parade next week.
