Our lovely Paper lanterns are made, but I have had a panic that they will 1. not be fully dry & 2. not be thick enough to support the weight of the tea light., so, this morning we made glass lanterns.
Simply paste tissue paper squares to old jam jars with watered down white glue, then paint over the whole thing with the glue mix to seal.
We went out for our lantern walk...it was wonderful, if not windy! Activities like this really make me feel like a child again :)
The girls loved walking along with their lanterns & we talked about how our lanterns light the way for us in the dark, just as Jesus lights our way in the world.
Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.
We came home to eat our stew & horseshoe biscuits, then the girls went up for their bath & 'discovered' a red, tissue wrapped gift for each girl - cosy new PJ's!
