Happy Lunar New Year! It’s the year of the Ox!
We are going to create fabulous Lunar New Year Lanterns. Part of the fun of this project is to treasure hunt your supplies from around your house and recycling bin. You’ll need a glass or plastic container. Look for any kind of colorful paper, like junk mail, giftwrap, magazines, envelopes, clean food wrappers, cereal boxes and napkins. Traditional lunar new year colors are red, yellow, gold, black and white with other colors sprinkled in. The project is open to your imagination!
