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.

Time: 20 minutes

Level: Easy

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

Method
With the A4 card landscape, cut the sides to create a curve.
Fold the card horizontally and then cut a few slit, then open back up.

Now it's time to decorate.

Thread beads through a pipe cleaner and then fix to the top to create the handle.
