Chinese New Year Lantern

Tired of painting on paper? Try painting on 3-dimensional objects like the paper lantern! One of my Favorite places for inspiration is Daiso! I was straightaway attracted to the $2 Japanese paper lanterns that come in all shapes & colours! 

Rae was excited to get started the moment she saw the lantern! It was Chinese New Year season & I thought it will be great to make a CNY lantern! When mixing the red and yellow colours, she exclaimed, ” Mummy look! It’s orange!” It was a moment of discovery for her.

On the first day of our Chinese New Year visit, Rae decided to give her handmade lantern to her grandparents! What surprise when she greeted them with the red lantern with the inverted Chinese Character which means “Spring is here”.
