Making lanterns for Chinese New Year is fun but often a bit tricky for really little ones. These flat lanterns create a great display and even tiny tots can get finger painting with a little help from a grownup.

Materials
A4 white card
Black pipe cleaner
Beads
Red paint
Red and gold glitter glue
Thin strips of red paper

Method
