Chinese Paper Lantern

With the start of 2013 I think it is a good idea to celebrate by making this Chinese paper lantern with the children.

I found this rainbow patten paper which makes a very colorful  Chinese paper lantern, you can use different colors and use for decorating your house in the celebration of the New Year !!!!
