St Martin’s Day on the 11th November is great time to make some lanterns.
You can start with the basic slit lantern
or make a pattern by pinching holes for the light to come through
or cut out a design and layer it with a contrasting colour.
We enjoyed this so much WeeBeastie chose to do this activity with his friends to celebrate St Andrew’s Day!
Lanterns would also fit well with celebrating the Chinese New Year.
