Now that you know a little bit more, it’s time to create a lantern of your own. There are three videos below, each one is a little more difficult. Start off with the easy lantern, then challenge yourself to the more complex ones. All you need for this craft is some paper (colored or white), a pair of scissors and either glue, tape or a stapler!
Liven up your living space by creating several Chinese paper lanterns and hanging them from a string. Get creative with the process, ask yourself these questions:
What other kind of paper could I use?
What else could I use to decorate the lantern?
Could I put a Chinese symbol on the lantern?
How could I make it look like there was a fire inside?
Return completed activities to campus between August 14th-23rd.
