making paper lanterns for kids is both a fun and neat way to bond with your kids due to the fact that it’s so easy and can be done right in your own kitchen or living room. Furthermore, it doesn’t require much materials or time to make the best possible looking lanterns. Moreover, there are several designs that one can create such as a lantern with a handle, “snowflake” lantern or tissue paper circle lantern. Lastly, whatever design you choose to make, be sure to follow this guide so that you and your kids can be happy with the final product.
First and foremost, it’s important that you choose a color and choose one that you like whether it be red, green blue or purple. Then you’ll have to scavenge up some colored paper, scissors and glue or tape. Next, you’ll fold your sheet of colored paper in half (lengthwise), cut even slits along the edges of the folded side and then unfold the paper. Moving forward, you will then have to bring the ends together to form a tube and last but not least, overlap and glue/tape the ends. Congratulations! You made a paper lantern! Now you and your kids can enjoy yours and theirs creations!
