It seemed like a good idea at the time - Let's do something to celebrate Chinese New Year. We gathered some basic materials: glitter, glue, red paint and an activity downloaded from the internet - free paper lantern template.
..and decorated till their hearts content.
They stood back and admired their creative works of art.
If only it didn't take so long to watch paint dry.
So they broadened their creative scope and ...
...eventually discovered the perfect canvas!
PS. It was straight in the bath for this toddler - assembling lanterns will have to wait. Oh yeah, the new favourite thing to do when having your photo taken is to stick your tongue out - so lady like.
