With Bonfire Night coming up, the little ones and I decided to put together a crafty activity around the theme of fire. They have no patience for lengthy projects at the moment so we went for lanterns that would take us under 10 minutes.
The bonfire lanterns we came up with can also double up as cupcake containers, or if you use a lidded plastic tub instead of a glass jar, it could be used as a night light.
What you Need
Clean jam jar and lid
red, orange and yellow tissue paper
LED tea light
brown wooden lolly sticks
Bostik Glu Dots
What to Do
Start by cutting the tissue paper into rough squares.
Cut the lolly sticks in 2 and stick to the outside of the lid using Glue Dots.
Crumple up tissue paper squares and glue them to the outside of the jar, alternating colours until it is covered.
Place the tea light inside the lantern and enjoy!
