How To Make Paper Lantern Craft


Fall kicks off the festival season. We got thinking about how to welcome the festivals and create crafts to celebrate them. We thought “what’s common across the two big festivals - Christmas and Diwali”? And, the answer came back “lights”! Interesting isn’t it? Lights are such a huge part of celebrating major festivals. So, we made the paper lantern craft or paper luminaries using paper, popsicle sticks and some mandala art.

Learning about festivals and celebrating them with your kids is so much fun. These are days that kids look forward and form long-term happy memories around. Making a craft that can symbolize festivals helps them develop an understanding of customs, culture and tradition. While, also exercising their creative neurons for visualizing, conceiving and implementing ideas.

Happy Festival Season! May the light be with you.
