We've been learning all about Chinese New Year in our class and did this really fun (and fairly simple!) project last week!
We made lanterns!
Each kiddo just needs one piece of yellow construction paper and one sheet of red. And a ruler!
And then I stopped taking pictures because I was running around like a chicken with my head cut off trying to STAPLE these things together! If you do this project- use STAPLES!!!! Glue doesn't really work!!!!
But here's what we ended up with!
They look so pretty hanging up in our classrooms! And I'm hoping all of the red will bring us good luck! ;-)
You can find a step by step video here (and some great book recommendations!):
Hope you're having a great week!!!
