Craft Spotlight: Color-In Chinese Lanterns

2014-02-10-FeatureImageWe combined two of our products into one project with the Chinese Lantern craft posted on Wednesday. Learn more about this colorful craft using our video and description below!

The Color-In Lanterns can be used with our rubbing plates to decorate the various pieces. Simply slide any of our available patterned rubbing plates underneath the lantern pieces. Rub the side of a crayon onto the top of the lantern piece and watch as the patterns pop through! Combining colors together is half the fun with this project. While rubbing the pattern onto the lantern pieces with one crayon color, switch into a different color to create new effects!

The interior lantern tube can be embellished with stickers or other rubbing plate designs.

Hang your students’ lanterns together on a length of string. Tie the string across a classroom wall.

To see some of these ideas in action, view the video below!
