Crafts for Kids
Making a lantern
Children love to make things on their own.
It's important to their development.
My daughter loves crafts and she loves to spend time making things with mommy. However now she wants to make everything on her own.
So I gave her a Pringles empty tube, some decorative and scrapbook paper,washi tape, kids scissors and glue and let her create on her own.
When she finished decorating the tube she asked me how to use this.
I had the idea to use it as a lantern for her room.
I had some fairy lights(battery operated), place them inside the tube, closed the lid and made a few holes around the tube.And our lantern was ready.
Here's another shot of our lantern in her room.
She is so proud and happy she made this.
She looks at it every night when we read her a bedtime story.
