One of the lovely traditions we have come across here is that of the autumnal lantern walk. Last year we had one with the little man’s Kita. this year it was with his forest playgroup. A few weeks ago he came home from playgroup with a lovely lantern. Made from a soft drinks bottle, plastic, wire, and paint it was simple but perfect.
At the very last minute I decided I should maybe have made one for myself as well so a little bit of emergency crafting was called for. I managed to cobble one together using a preserving jar. I decorated it with a few sparklies and stickers from the little man’s crafting supplies, added a string handle, some sand and a nightlight and we were ready for the off.
